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.
