Lawyer who pleaded Pakistan’s case says ‘ICJ will never acquit Jadhav’
Days after India secured a stay on the execution of Kulbhushan Jadhav in ICJ, the lawyer who represented Pakistan said that India didn’t win the case and ICJ will never acquit Jadhav. The Britain-based lawyer Khawar Qureshi told this to a TV channel.
On Saturday, media reports said that Pakistani Attorney General Ashtar Ausaf Ali would represent the country from now instead of Quereshi in the case. Qureshi also said he was hopeful that the ICJ will dismiss Jadhav’s case by the end of this year or early 2018. He also dismissed media reports about his high fee for the case. “I am saddened to even answer such questions and I reject such reports,” The Nation quoted Qureshi as saying.
Qureshi represented Pakistan at the ICJ earlier this week. On Thursday, the ICJ ordered Pakistan to stay the execution of Jadhav until a final decision in the proceedings.
