Pakistan amending Army act to allow Kulbhushan Jadhav appeal in civilian court
Pakistan’s government has prepared a draft to amend Army Act for allowing Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav a right to file an appeal in a civilian court against his conviction.
However, the amendment to the Army Act will be only applicable to the International Court of Justice’s judgments.
The purpose of the amendment is to determine the legal procedure of filing an appeal against military court decisions.
Currently, cases under trial in the military courts and under the Army Act law forbade such individuals or groups from filing an appeal and seeking justice from the civilian court.
The ICJ, in its verdict on Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav’s case, had rejected most of the remedies sought by India.
The court had, however, directed Pakistan to provide effective review and reconsideration of his conviction and sentences according to its own justice system.
In late October, ICJ President Judge Abduylqawi Yusuf appreciated Pakistan’s role in implementing the July 17 judgement of the international court in full.
