Accused of terrorism and espionage, Jadhav, a 47-year-old officer, was sentenced to death after being arrested in Baluchistan region. A diplomatic affair between India and Pakistan. For the International Court of Justice, Mr Jadhav should not be “executed until the final decision in this case has been made”. He could have been executed as early as August 2017. He has just been given a reprieve.
