Lots of rona-dhona, self flagellation, finger pointing, and of course, stiff upper lips (stay the course) in the land of plenty after the ICJ verdict. Enjoy!'Pakistan made a mistake': Criticism at home over ICJ decision
a decision which has caused shock and disappointment in Pakistan
Although Pakistani analysts were earlier confident that the ICJ does not have jurisdiction to stay Jadhav’s execution, today observers have said the jurisdiction argument was “weak” and “damaging” (Note: kinda like the drum beats during the 1971 war - victory until, yikes, defeat)
ustice (r) Shaiq Usmani told DawnNews the decision is alarming because “ICJ does not have jurisdiction”.
It's Pakistan’s mistake to have appeared there. They shouldn't have attended. They have shot themselves in the foot.
the case will go on in Pakistan (Note: Victory!!)
London-based Barrister Rashid Aslam says Pakistan was ill-prepared and did not utilise the 90 minutes it had to make its argument...but we wasted 40 minutes
It is very clear, article 5 B of the Vienna Convention, that if a civilian is caught he is subject to human rights law. But if it is a spy, then human rights are forfieted. So I don't think we presented the case quite well.
I think Pakistan was grossly unprepared. It might be that we didn't have enough time…
Germany vs US 1982, Germans Karl-Heinz & Walter awarded death penalty. ICJ moved but US executed them
the ICJ is not binding legally but morally
it cannot be said that the verdict is in India’s favour but it can be said that the court has just ordered to overturn the implementation of execution, and has refused Pakistan’s challenge of its own jurisdiction
Our lawyers were inexperienced
I think this decision is a violation of the principle of natural justice
The lawyers handling these matters had no experience. The arguments had no weight. They should have been presented in a rational manner.
We need a dedicated team for Pakistan, loyal to the country
Pakistan's jurisprudence has been ruined because of this
More arguments should have been made regarding espionage.
India did not give consent to the Kashmir issue going to ICJ, then why did Pakistan give consent to the Jadhav case?
17 years ago when Pakistan filed a case, ICJ said we do not have jurisdiction. "Today, ICJ did not accept that decision.
I am waiting for someone in pakiland to point out that one of the judges is a yindoo. Bottom line, pakis do not see this as a loss. It is like the general who qualified his orders to retreat as " it is not an order to retreat, it is an order to advance to the rear".https://www.dawn.com/news/1333924/pakis ... j-decision
