ISLAMABAD: A invoice handed by the joint sitting of Parliament associated to Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav shouldn’t be person-specific, it’s a “national security” challenge, Law Minister Farogh Nasim stated Friday.

The minister made these feedback in a press convention alongside MNA Maleeka Bokhari in response to the Opposition’s claims that the PTI had given an NRO to the Indian spy.

Parliament had handed the International Court of Justice (Review and Re-consideration) Bill, 2020 on Thursday to supply for the correct of assessment and reconsideration within the Kulbhushan Jadhav case consistent with the judgment of the International Court of Justice.

The ICJ, in its July 2019 judgement, had made an remark that Pakistan was beneath an obligation to supply via its personal selecting efficient assessment and reconsideration of the conviction and sentence of Jadhav, in order to make sure that full weight was given to the impact of the violation of the rights set forth in Article 36 of the Vienna Convention, taking account of paragraphs 139, 145 and 146 of the judgment.

Clarifying the federal government’s view on the matter, Farogh Nasim urged the Opposition to think about Pakistan’s nationwide safety issues and never politicise the problem.

“This is Pakistan’s red line. India would have gone to the ICJ and filed a contempt case against us. The Modi government could have also approached the UN Security Council had we not provided Kulbhshan right to review,” the minister added.

Farogh Nasim stated the invoice shouldn’t be person-specific and could be utilized to all those that fill the factors.

Reacting to a press release made by an Opposition chief that the US doesn’t settle for the choices of the ICJ, the minister stated Pakistan shouldn’t be the US neither is the nation a banana republic.

He requested the Opposition to not make this challenge a “tool for politics”.

“Looks like you [Opposition] don’t understand this thing. If you [Opposition] are doing this on purpose then this is a big problem,” Forough Naseem stated.

The minister famous that with the passage of this invoice, India’s dream to assault Pakistan has been shattered. “We cut off India’s hands through this legislation.”
