Addressing a reception in Manchester, Qureshi said: "Pakistan has all the evidence against Jadhav of sabotage activities inside Pakistan. Pakistan's legal team will present its stance in the case at The Hague on the 19th of this month," he was quoted as saying by Geo News.
 
The ICJ, the principal judicial organ of the UN, will hold public hearings in the Jadhav case from February 18 to 21 at the Peace Palace in The Hague.
 
Jadhav was sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court for espionage in April 2017 following which India moved the ICJ. A 10-member ICJ bench restrained Pakistan from executing Jadhav till the case was adjudicated on.
