Amnesty International condemns death sentence for Kulbhushan Jadhav


New Delhi, April 10: Amnesty International condemned Pakistan sentencing to death former Indian navy officer Kulbhushan Jadhav on Monday. Biraj Patnaik, South Asia director of Amnesty International said that death sentence for Jadhav is an example that Pakistan's courts show no regard for rights of the prisoners and that the system works in secrecy.

Patnaik added that Amnesty International opposes death penalty at all times and in all circumstances, regardless of who is accused, the crime, guilt or innocence, or the method of execution.

Pakistan's military court on Monday sentenced Jadhav to death for allegedly waging war against the country. He has been accused of being a spy for India's Research & Analysis Wing. It is alleged that he sabotaged Pakistan's efforts to ensure peace in Gilgit and Baltistan region.
