Sushma Swaraj today said that Indian lawyer at ICJ has charged just Re 1 for defending Kulbushan Jadhav case.
She was responding to a twitter user who claimed that any good Indian lawyer would have defended Jadhav with much less expenses than Salve.
The International Court of Justice (ICJ) on Monday heard the case brought to it by India pertaining to the sentencing of Indian national Kulbhushan Jadhav, who was handed a death sentence by a Pakistani Field General Court Martial (FGCM) last month.
India had filed its ICJ plea on the May 8 seeking justice for the 46-year-old former naval officer. ICJ had directed Pakistan not to take any step which would render the international court taking up the matter meaningless.
Jadhav was arrested on spying charges on the March 3 last year although he had become a businessman after leaving the navy.
His ordeal has already extended beyond 17 months, ICJ granting India's plea will only be a well-deserved reprieve. The soldier and his country will have to battle on.
