An American diplomat, who was involved in a fatal auto crash in Pakistan, has left the country, Geo News quoted the United States Embassy, as saying. However, an Islamabad court had ruled earlier that Col Hall's diplomatic immunity did not protect him in the case, as per media reports.
Hall is a certified envoy who enjoys diplomatic immunity, the sources reasoned regarding his release, adding that Pakistani laws are not applicable to him.
Two security officials said on Saturday that the plane at Nur Khan air base arriving to carry USA military attache Col. Joseph Emanuel Hall out of Pakistan has returned after he failed to get clearance.
On April 7, US Defence and Air Attaché Col Joseph Emanuel Hall had jumped a red light at the Daman-i-Koh Chowk in Islamabad and hit a motorcycle.
Diplomatic sources further confirmed that Colonel Hall was a USA diplomat who held absolute immunity as per the Vienna Convention of 1972 and the privileges Pakistan extends to diplomats.
On the other hand, the United States government had refused to exempt Joseph from the diplomatic immunity, said sources.
