Hague: The Hague based Permanent Court of Arbitration (PCA) has accepted Pakistan’s position that it had competence to determine a dispute between India and Pakistan regarding change of designs in Kishan Ganga and Ratle Hydro Electric plants by India.

The court of arbitration rejected India’s objection to the assumption of jurisdiction by the international forum - PCA. Now the international court will start hearing Pakistan’s claim on merit to the effect that above mentioned two projects’ designs are in breach of Indus Water Treaty of 1961.

Pakistan was represented by a team of international experts assisted by a team of the Attorney General for Pakistan including Advocate Zohair Waheed and Advocate Ms. Leena Nishter. Barrister Ahmed Irfan Aslam acted as Pakistan’s agent in the PCA.
