Political leaders across party lines welcomed the International Court of Justice (ICJ) verdict in Kulbhushan Jadhav case and termed it a big victory for India.
Reading out the verdict at The Hague, President of the International Court of Justice Judge Abdulqawi Ahmed Yusuf ordered an 'effective review and reconsideration of the conviction and sentence of Mr Kulbhushan Sudhir Jadhav'.
The International Court Of Justice delivers its verdict in the case of Kulbhushan Jadhav, the Indian national currently on death row in Pakistan.
Kulbhushan Jadhav, a former Indian Navy officer, was kidnapped by Pakistani agencies on March 3, 2016, from Iran where he was in connection with his business.
India on Wednesday questioned the functioning of Pakistan's notorious military courts and urged the top UN court to annul Jadhav's death sentence, which is based on an 'extracted confession'.
Harish Salve, who was representing India in the case, also said that the time has come for the ICJ to make Article 36 a potent weapon for protecting human rights.
According to the Pakistan media, the account was blocked late on Tuesday after Indian authorities complained to the microblogging website.
The International Court of Justice (ICJ) on Tuesday refused to entertain a request made by Pakistan to adjourn the hearing in the case of Kulbhushan Jadhav to appoint a new ad-hoc judge.
Jadhav's trial by a Pakistani military court "hopelessly failed to satisfy even the minimum standards of due process", ex-solicitor general Harish Salve told the ICJ.
A 10-member bench of the ICJ on May 18, 2017 had restrained Pakistan from executing Jadhav till adjudication of the case.
Jadhav, 47, was sentenced to death by the military court in April 2017
Pakistan's rejoinder has been prepared by a team of experts led by Pakistan's Attorney General.
India had moved the ICJ in May last year after Jadhav, 48, was sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court on charges of espionage and terrorism.
India's nominee Dalveer Bhandari was re-elected as the fifth judge to the International Court of Justice (ICJ) after the United Kingdom withdrew the nomination of Christopher Greenwood on Monday.
Jadhav, 47, is on death row in Pakistan after the country's military in a secret trial in April found him guilty of espionage and terrorism.
