After losing the 1st round of legal hearing at ICJ, Pakistan’s foreign policy chief Sartaj Aziz confirmed that Pakistan will form new team of lawyers. In a major diplomatic and legal victory for India, the International Court of Justice on Thursday asked Pakistan not to execute Kulbhushan Jadhav until its final decision.
The legal team who fought for Pakistan was widely denounced after ICJ’s order to stay Jadhav’s execution. Currently Pakistan is in the midst of selecting a new legal team. A law ministry official in Islamabad confirmed that “Some law firms have been approached by the ministry of law to discuss such a possibility.”
