And with the court actually asking Pakistan to report on the measures it is taking to ensure that the execution does not take place, India's latest hero definitely has something to be happy about.

"With great sense of relief as also happiness in India that the ICJ has ruled in India's favour and stayed the execution of Jadhav who is held in Pakistan's custody", he added.

ICJ President Ronny Abraham, a 63-year-old French academic and practitioner in public global law, asked Pakistan to keep the court informed "of all measures taken" in the implementation of the order.

India told the ICJ that immediate steps must be taken to stop Pakistan from carrying out the death sentence of Jadhav.

New Delhi argued in a preliminary hearing at the ICJ on Monday that Islamabad violated the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations by denying Jadhav access to legal assistance. I felt a positive energy when I was arguing the case. "They, and others supporting them, did not have the benefit of time available to the Indian team while preparing their arguments and performed well under a tight deadline".

Both PTI and PPP converged on seeking reply from Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif about the case and also, organizing a National Security Committee (NSC) meeting. India can then go to the Security Council, which may then decide upon measures to be taken to give effect to the judgement.

Legal experts blame FO for "poor" case handling, reads the headline of a piece on the Tribune's site.

Blass Notes that, despite rumours about a Surface Book 2, this won't make its debut at next week's event. This alleged device could be the upcoming Surface Pro 5 with upgraded hardware specifications.

India had earlier moved to ICJ against Kulbhushan Jadhav s death sentence which was confirmed after Pakistan trying him through Field General Court Martial (FGCM) under Pakistan Army Act (PAA).

India has maintained that Mr Jadhav had long retired from the navy, and that he was kidnapped from Iran while there on personal business, and smuggled into Pakistan.

London-based Barrister Rashid Aslam said Pakistan was ill-prepared and did not utilise the 90 minutes it had to make its argument.

"In our submissions on 15 May, we had assured the court unambiguously that Commander Jadhav would be provided every opportunity and remedy available under the law to defend his case", a statement said.

"Being a responsible member of the UN, Pakistan has no option but complying with the verdict even if it strongly disagrees with it".

Islamabad could insist on cooperation from India on the investigation into Jadhav's activities, he said.
