Kulbhushan Jadhav was arrested on 3rd March, 2016 by Pakistani security forces in Balochistan province after he reportedly entered from Iran. On 8 May 2017, India filed an Application instituting proceedings against Pakistan in respect of a dispute concerning alleged violations of the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations of 24 April 1963 “in the matter of the detention and trial of an Indian national, Mr. Kulbhushan Sudhir Jadhav”, who had been sentenced to death by a military court in Pakistan in April 2017. In May 9, 2018, ICJ has stayed his death sentence after India had moved a petition before the UN body to seek justice for him, alleging violation of the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations by Pakistan. Public hearings on the merits of the case were held from 18 to 21 February 2019. In its Judgment of 17 July 2019, the Court first outlined the background of the dispute, before concluding that it had jurisdiction to entertain India’s claims based on alleged violations of the Vienna Convention. With a view to understand thoroughly the recent developments and the Indian contentions and the importance of the trial, SLLA is conducting an International Lecture on ‘My Experience in I.C.J. with special reference to the Kulbhushan Jadhav Case’ on 15th June, 2021, 02:30 P.M.
