Indian response to Kulbhushan Jadhav confessional video

Response to a Query Regarding Pakistan’s releases pertaining to Mr. Kulbhushan Jadhav

In response to a query regarding the so-called confessional video of Mr. Kulbhushan Jadhav and a  press release by Pakistan in the matter today, the Official Spokesperson said:

The developments bring out once again the lack of transparency and farcical nature of proceedings against Mr. Jadhav on concocted charges, continued violation of his legal and consular rights and an attempt to introduce prejudice in the proceedings in the International Court of Justice (ICJ).

Pakistan has never disclosed even to the ICJ Mr. Jadhav's purported appeal to a military tribunal in Pakistan and has effectively prevented his parents from pursuing the appeal  and the petition filed by Mr Jadhav's mother. The details and circumstances of the alleged mercy petition by Mr Jadhav are not clear and even the fact of its existence is doubtful, shrouded as the proceedings against Mr Jadhav have been in opacity.

The Government has once again demanded earlier this week Consular Access to Mr. Jadhav and reiterated his family’s request for visas.

Manufactured facts cannot alter the reality,  and do not detract from the fact that Pakistan is in violation of its international obligation to India and Mr. Jadhav.  We expect Pakistan to abide by the order of ICJ staying Mr. Jadhav’s execution and desist from attempting to influence the ICJ proceedings through false propaganda.

India is determined to pursue the matter in ICJ and is confident that justice will be done without being affected in any manner by these unwarranted and misleading steps taken by Pakistan."
