Did Pakistan know of India's ICJ move?

India acknowledges that Jadhav had served with the Navy but denies that he has any connection with the government.

Pakistan's Attorney General's Office in the Supreme Court building in Islamabad is witnessing unusual late sittings these days.

According to the press release put out by the ICJ, India would make its oral observations at the court before lunch on Monday while Pakistan would argue its case in the post-lunch session.

Mumbai (Maharashtra), May 14: Maharashtra public prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam on Sunday said serious consequences would follow Pakistan if it fails to adhere to the International Court of Justice's (ICJ) verdict on former Indian naval officer Kulbhushan Jadahv's case.

The prime Minster's Senior Adviser on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz told reporters that Pakistan is examining the Indian move and the Foreign Office will soon respond in detail.

On the other hand, Attorney General Ishtar Ausaf's office is combing through bilateral treaties and agreements.

Investigators are working to track down those responsible for the ransomware used on Friday, known as Wanna Decryptor or WannaCry. He began analyzing a sample of the malicious software and noticed its code included a hidden web address that wasn't registered.

On March 29, Pakistan had revised its declaration on compulsory jurisdiction, which spells out terms under which Islamabad accepts the ICJ on matters of dispute settlement.

India also contended it was not informed of Jadhav's detention until long after his arrest.

India moved the global court under 36 (1) of the ICJ statute, because both India and Pakistan are signatories to the Optional Protocol to the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations (VCCR). A military court sentenced him to death, alleging he was involved in espionage and anti-national activities. The recommendations outlined the strategy on how Pakistan could plead the case before the Hague-based ICJ, which has stayed Jadhav's execution. A day later, Pakistan said it was reviewing the jurisdiction of the ICJ.

The United States withdrew from the ICJ's compulsory jurisdiction in 1986 after the court ruled it owed Nicaragua war reparations.

Referring to Vienna Convention on Consular Relations, India told ICJ that Pakistan had rejected 16 requests for consular access to Jadhav since March a year ago When Islamabad claimed he was arrested in Balochistan. Former diplomat Vivek Katju anxious that it would open the option for Pakistan to similarly take other bilateral issues to an worldwide fora.
