Former CJ Jillani to serve as ad-hoc ICJ judge in Jadhav’s case

ISLAMABAD -UNS – The government is contemplating appointment of former chief justice Tassaduq Jilani as an ad-hoc judge in Kulbhushan Jadhav case in International Court of Justice.

Reportedly, the government is desirous of appointing the former chief justice as the ad-hoc judge in the case.

It should be noted here that Pakistan is to file a reply in the case on October 12, a month after India filed the reply as per the orders of the international court to the neighbours.

India had taken Jadhav’s case to the international court earlier this year challenging the death sentence awarded to the convicted spy by a military court.

However, the execution was stayed by the International Court of Justice until further order.
