Kulbhushan Jadhav Gets Right To Appeal

Kulbhushan Jadhav, the Indian citizen who is on death row in Pakistan, can appeal against his sentence in high court. This after the Pakistani parliament passed a law on Wednesday, complying with an order of the International Court of Justice (ICJ). A Pakistani military court had sentenced Jadhav to death for espionage in 2017. India calls the allegation baseless, saying Jadhav, a retired Navy officer, was kidnapped from Iran. India then moved ICJ and got a stay on his execution.
