The International Court of Justice (ICJ) in the Hague has asked India to make its submission in the Kulbhushan Jadhav case by September 13, 2017.

Similarly, Pakistan has been asked by the court to complete its submission by December 13, 2017, the Ministry of External Affairs said on June 16.

In a hearing of the case on May 18, a 10-member bench of the ICJ restrained Pakistan from executing Jadhav , a retired Indian Navy officer, who was awarded death sentence by a Pakistan army court for his alleged “involvement in espionage and terrorist activities in Pakistan”.

India moved the ICJ against the death sentence on May 8, describing the charges against Jadhav as “concocted” and his trial as “farcical”.
