Resolution against Sharif govt over Jadhav case rejected

Ruling PML-N on Saturday foiled the Opposition's attempt to move a resolution in Pakistan s Punjab Assembly accusing the Nawaz Sharif government of "conspiring" to provide relief to Indian national Kulbhushan Jadhav at the ICJ.

Leader of Opposition Mian Mahmoodur Rasheed, who belongs to Imran Khan s Pakistan Tahreek-i-Insaf (PTI), yesterday tabled the resolution in the Punjab Assembly, alleging that the Sharif government caused "diplomatic embarrassment" to Pakistan in Jadhav's case at the International Court of Justice.

The Hague-based court on May 18 stayed the execution of Jadhav, 46, sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court for alleged espionage.

The UN's highest judicial body also asked Pakistan to take "all measures" to ensure that Jadhav was not executed till the court had delivered its final verdict on the issue.
