International Court of Justice (ICJ for short), on Wednesday, announced that it will hold the hearing in the case of an Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav on May 15 while maintaining that the death sentence of Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav has not been stayed
ICJ, in an unofficial press release, “The hearings will be devoted to the Request for the indication of provisional measures submitted by India”
ICJ, previously on Tuesday May 9th, published a press release revealing that India has requested to indicate provisional measures. Following the press-released, Indian media and government officials had falsely claimed that Jadhav’s sentence was stayed by the international court.
Where Indian media was spreading lies all over the state by fooling people, Sushma Swaraj tweeted that she has told the spy’s mother about the court order, which in reality was not any rule of court.
I have spoken to the mother of #KulbhushanJadhav and told her about the order of President, ICJ under Art 74 Paragraph 4 of Rules of Court.

Further reading ICJ full press release, Article 74, paragraph 4, of the Rules of Court demands that “pending the meeting of the Court, the President may call upon the parties to act in such a way as will enable any order the Court may make on the request for provisional measures to have its appropriate effects”
