The Pakistani Foreign Ministry said in a statement late on Thursday that Islamabad would gran consular access to Jadhav, the NDTV broadcaster reported. The ministry also reportedly said that Kulbhushan Jadhav was informed of his rights under the Vienna Convention on consular relations.
"Pursuant to the decision of the ICJ, Kulbhushan Jadhav has been informed of his rights under Article 36, Paragraph 1(b) of the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations [...] As a responsible state, Pakistan will grant consular access to Kulbhushan Jadhav according to Pakistani laws, for which modalities are being worked out", the statement said, cited by the NDTV.
According to the media report, a 16-member bench headed by President of the Court, Judge Abdulqawi Ahmed Yusuf, by 15-1 votes ordered Pakistan on Wednesday to undertake an "effective review and reconsideration" of the conviction and sentence of Kulbhushan Jadhav and also to grant consular access to India without further delay.
The bench, however, reportedly rejected some remedies sought by India, including annulment of the military court's decision convicting Kulbhushan Jadhav, his release and safe passage to India.
