Indian-American community US White House petition Trump Administration Kulbhushan Jadhav Pakistani court espionage subversive activities SS former naval officer sentenced to death

The mother of Kulbhushan Jadhav, the Indian man sentenced to death in Pakistan allegedly for spying, has filed an appeal at a higher court in Pakistan.

Foreign Secretary Tehmina Janjua said that consular access could not be allowed to a spy.

"Today we have filed an appeal against Pakistan military court's verdict in the Kulbhushan Jadhav case".

Avanti Jadhav, whose son Kulbhushan was arrested in Pakistan's Balochistan province in March previous year, filed an appeal at the Supreme Court via the Indian High Commission in Islamabad, broadcaster NDTV reported.

Hot Switch sales boost Nintendo sales, trim quarterly loss
The sample is fairly small when held up against PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, both of which launched in November 2013. The Nintendo Switch , meanwhile, has sold 2.74 million units already, which Nintendo states is "a promising start".

Jadhav's mother has requested the intervention of the Pakistan Government and expressed the desire to meet her son.

Along with this India put in 16 request for consular access to Jadhav, who New Delhi alleges is in detention in Pakistan on "concocted" charges.

A military court in Pakistan, ignoring all global norms and conventions announced the death penalty for Jadhav on 10 April, claiming that he was involved in espionage in Karachi and Balochistan. India claimed that Jhadav had already retired from the Indian navy and strongly implied that he had been kidnapped from Iran by Pakistan's security agencies.

The former naval officer can move the Supreme Court of Pakistan against the order of the military court, which tried him under Section 59 of the Army Act 1952 and Section 3 of the Official Secrets Act 1923.

Texas poised to pass 'sanctuary city' ban with jail penalty
Though House Democrats don't have the votes to block the bill, they planned to file enough challenges to force hours of debate. Greg Abbott has vowed to sign SB4, which would become the first state to ban sanctuary cities under the Trump administration.

"Pakistan was... requested to facilitate visas for the mother and father of Shri". The statement revealed that the parents had applied for visas to the High Commission of Pakistan in Delhi. This was second time that Bambawale has met Janjua to seek consular access to Jadhav.

Pakistan has been accusing India of being behind terror attacks, even sending "dossiers" to United Nations and other countries. He had told reporters after the meeting that he had demanded a certified copy of the chargesheet and judgement so that India could appeal against the sentence.

The Pakistan Army had before said there will be "no bargain" on the issue of capital punishment granted to Jadhav.

Pakistan's Foreign Office has said judicial process was followed during Jadhav's trial and he was provided a lawyer in accordance with relevant laws and the Constitution.
