The wait has come to an end. The International Court of Justice (ICJ) will deliver on Wednesday its verdict in a case relating to Indian national Kulbhushan Jadhav, whose death sentence by a Pakistani military court based on an "extracted confession" has been questioned by India. The judgment carries significant weight as far as India's bilateral ties with Pakistan are concerned.
It’s going to be for the first time that a 16-judge bench of ICJ, led by a Muslim judge Justice Abdulqawi Ahmed Yusuf, would decide whether consular access should be given to the spy or not.
The Indian spy was arrested on March 3, 2016, from Balochistan on allegations of espionage and terrorism.
