Pakistan allows Kulbhushan's meeting with wife, mother on Dec 25

09 December 2017

The International Court of Justice (ICJ) in May had halted his execution on India's appeal.

Islamabad accepted New Delhi's demand to allow Jadhav's mother Avantika Jadhav to travel with his wife Chetna to Pakistan to meet the former Indian Navy officer, who had been incarcerated there since March 2016.

Foreign Office spokesman Dr Mohammad Faisal during his weekly news briefing here Friday said a staff member from the Indian embassy will also be present during the meeting.

Earlier last month the Pakistan government had made a decision to arrange a meeting of Jadhav and his wife.

Kulbhushan Jadhav, the Indian national sentenced to death in Pakistan, will be allowed to meet his wife and mother on December 25.

"After repeated attempts by the government over the past two years, Pakistan which recently agreed to grant visa to Kulbhushan's wife only is now giving it to his mother as well", he said. "RAW agent Commander Kulbhushan Sudhir Jadhav was tried by FGCM under section 59 of Pakistan Army Act (PAA) 1952 and Section 3 of official Secret Act of 1923".

Ohtani is limited to a minor league contract because of restrictions imposed by the MLB collective bargaining agreement. Louis was only able to offer him a $300,000 signing bonus, as the new CBA limits team's spending on worldwide talent.

Kulbhushan Jadhav is at the heart of a dispute between India and Pakistan. However, after request from India, Jadhav's mother was also allowed to visit him.

India had urged Pakistan to also permit Jadhav's mother to accompany the wife.

The Pakistan foreign office in a tweet had said that it had received India's reply to Pakistan's humanitarian offer. The suspect was said to be an officer of the Indian navy working for the covert agency to destabilize Pakistan.

He added that "further modalities of the meeting" will be worked out in consultation with the wife and mother of Jadhav. "It is too early to predict the nature of the meeting, the nature of access that is facilitated by the Pakistani government", he said.

Earlier, Pakistan had been repeatedly denied consular access to the Indian prisoner on grounds not applicable to cases pertaining to espionage.
