ISLAMABAD, July 16 - Pakistan on Thursday provided consular access to Indian prisoner on death row Kulbhushan Jadhav, days after Islamabad claimed that he has refused to file an appeal in a court here against his conviction by a military court.
This was the second consular access to Jadhav. The first consular access was provided by Pakistan on September 2, 2019, the Pakistan Foreign Office said in a statement.
Jadhav, the 50-year-old retired Indian Navy officer, was sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court on charges of �espionage and terrorism� in April 2017.
The Hague-based ICJ ruled in July last year that Pakistan must undertake an �effective review and reconsideration� of the conviction and sentence of Jadhav and also to grant consular access to India without further delay. � PTI
