Granting stay in provisional order is not unusual: Sartaj
ISLAMABAD: Adviser to Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz said on Thursday that granting stay in provisional order is not an unusual thing. Stay is granted in most of the appeals, he added.
Our lawyers had presented the case very well in the ICJ, Aziz said. The court had only expressed its viewpoint on providing consular access to Kulbhushan Jadhav. Security is a major reason in providing consular access to Indian spy, he said.
Meanwhile, the Attorney General Office vowed to take the case to its logical end. Pakistan’s stance on Kulbhushan Jadhav had not changed after the ICJ’s order, a statement said on Thursday.
The court had been assured that Kulbhushan Jadhav would be provided the right to defend as per the law.
