India can move UN Security Council if Pakistan defies ICJ order on Yadav: experts

India can move UN Security Council if Pakistan defies ICJ order on Yadav: experts

NEW DELHI: India can approach United Nations Security Council if Islamabad defies the International Court of Justice (ICJ) stay order on RAW agent Kulbhushan Yadav and consular access to him, experts of International law said.

The legal experts said the problem is world court’s order cannot be enforced the way domestic court verdicts can, adding that Pakistan may claim it had not agreed to the case at the judicial branch of the UN.

India said Thursday, there was no ambiguity in ICJ’s judgment, which it said created a legally binding international obligation on Pakistan. India says Yadav should be safe as long as final decision does not come.

The International Court of Justice (ICJ) on Thursday ordered Pakistan to stay the execution of Yadav convicted of spying.

Judges at the ICJ ruled in a unanimous and binding decision that Kulbhushan Sudhir Yadav must not be put to death by Islamabad until they have had time to pass the final judgement in the case.

Yadav was awarded death sentence by Field General Court Martial (FGCM) on charges of espionage.

Pakistan says ICJ has no jurisdiction to hear the case of Yadav as it pertains with the national security of the country.
