1. Have finally read judgment in #Jadhav case. The judgment does NOT find that Jadhav was a spy. Equally it does NOT direct Pakistan to return Jadhav to India asap. However, #ICJ does find Pakistan in breach of its obligations under the Vienna Convention. More highlights follow:
2. The matter was before ICJ because: Both India and Pakistan have signed the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations and are parties to the Optional Protocol WITHOUT reservations. This means that all disputes regarding the Convention MUST be brought before the ICJ. #Jadhav #ICJ
3.Pakistan raised 3 objections to the admissibility of India’s Application. ICJ rejected all 3: (a) Pakistan said India had abused ICJ procedure by seeking a stay of execution. ICJ rejected this citing ‘considerable uncertainty’ in Pakistan’s court procedures #Jadhav #ICJ

1. I have been intrigued all day by claims by Pakistan that it had 'won' the Jadhav case. Even a cursory read of the press release suggests otherwise. Let me recap: #Jadhav #ICJ
2. The International Court of Justice has found Pakistan to be in breach of its obligations incumbent under Article 36 of the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations. In doing so, the Court has FULLY upheld India's contention against Pakistan in this regard. #Jadhav #ICJ
3. Pakistan had filed objections to the admissibility of India's case before ICJ. The Court REJECTED Pakistan's contention 15:1 and admitted India’s application. The one judge who spoke for Pakistan, was its own appointee to the Court: Justice Jilani. #Jadhav #ICJ

@SushmaSwaraj and Harish Salve.
But lest we forget...
Citing articles published in Indian news papers to hit back at India in ICJ on the Kulbhshan Jadhav case, Pakistan had insisted that the Indian Navy officer was a "spy" and was an "instrument of India's official policy of terror".
Pakistan citing articles in Indian Media:…

#KulbhushanJadhav #ICJ @CIJ_ICJ
There is a confession by Jadhav before a judicial magistrate. He was also convicted under Section 3 of the Official Secrets Act for terrorist activities in 2014. India has glossed over these matters, Khawar Qureshi

For all you public international law nerds after my own heart, time for a thread on today’s International Court of Justice judgment re whether it has jurisdiction over Iran’s claims against the United States (buckle up!) #ICJ… 1/
I've previously had the privilege of serving as Counselor on International Law in the USG, so will preface this thread by emphasizing that I am not currently serving in any USG capacity & what follows are my purely personal reactions to today's ICJ judgment. 2/
For those who follow the ICJ less closely, today's judgment only addresses “preliminary objections” filed by the US in response to Iran’s complaint against it. The ICJ only has jurisdiction when States agree to submit disputes to it, either in advance or on an ad hoc basis. 3/
