ISLAMABAD, JUN 06 (DNA) – Senate Chairman Raza Rabbani on Monday admitted an adjournment motion to discuss the decision of the International Court of Justice, staying the execution of death sentence awarded to Kulbhushan Jadhav, the Indian agent.

Senator Sirajul Haq, the mover of the motion, spoke to admit this adjournment motion of great national importance which the chairman admitted for two hours discussion on a specific date to be announced later. Chairman Rabbani also directed to issue notices to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Attorney General about the admissibility of this adjournment motion which would be discussed in the House.

He said that the Special Committee was looking into this matter so it was not in order for admissibility.
