Michael Polak’s article, , has been published by the Indian Journal of International Law.

The article considers the Jadhav Case between India and Pakistan which is to be heard by the International Court of Justice which concerns the trial of an alleged Indian spy before one of Pakistan’s notorious military courts and the death sentence which was passed without him being provided with access to his Consul as required by Article 36 of the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations.  The article focusses on whether the remedies requested by India, that Pakistan be restrained from giving effect to the sentence and to annul the decision of the Military Court or if Pakistan is unable to do this, that the Court restrain Pakistan from giving effect to the sentence or convictions and to direct Pakistan to release Mr Jadhav are available under international law and whether these remedies are likely to be granted.
