After Pakistan’s National Assembly authorised a invoice permitting Indian nationwide Kulbhushan Jadhav to attraction towards his conviction within the nation’s excessive courts, former Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi at the moment stated the one method Mr Jadhav might get reduction can be if the International Court permits his plea to be heard in a impartial nation with judicial system.
“We (India) should ask the international court if the appeal can be heard in a neutral country which has a good judicial system. That probably is the only way Jadhav will get some relief. The judicial system is not trustworthy in Pakistan. By getting a lawyer from India, I don’t think he will meet the end of justice,” Mr Rohatgi informed ANI.
The former Attorney General stated he’ll take Pakistan’s choice to permit Mr Jadhav attraction in excessive courts with a “pinch of salt”, however added that it is a “small welcome step”.
“I personally feel that the judicial system and atmosphere in that country (Pakistan) is such that India is treated as an enemy. So I don’t really think that Jadhav will get justice in an appeal just by getting an Indian lawyer. I don’t think that will serve the purpose,” he stated.
Mr Rohatgi urged that India ought to once more make a plea at Human Rights Court and International Court of Justice for Mr Jadhav’s launch as he was “wrongly arrested and illegally convicted without any rights”.
“A neutral lawyer from India or elsewhere I don’t think it will make a difference. We should ask the international court if the appeal can be heard in a neutral country like Sri Lanka or Singapore which have a good judicial system,” he stated.
