May be true. But, the danger for Mr. Jadhav is far from over.
Even if the ICJ delivers a verdict against Pakistan, it can still ignore the verdict taking a cue from its Himalayan-friend China which simply spurned the UNCLOS Arbitration Court's ruling. Simply, nobody could do anything.
But India going to ICJ has got international attention to Jadhav's case. India succeeded in internationalization of the Jadhav's case and by cleverly being silent on retaliatory kidnapping of Pak army retd officer we have denied the same opportunity to Pakistan. Considering Pakistan has denied even consular access to Jadhav, there is a good chance that ICJ verdict will go against Pakistan and if that happens and Pakistan still goes ahead with the execution, India will have a strong case in teaching Pakistan a lesson with rest of the world remaining neutral if not being sympathetic to India.
