US diplomat doesn't have'absolute immunity

Pakistan won't allow a US diplomat from leaving the country after he was involved in a fatal traffic accident, a Pakistani intelligence official.

Any way credit goes to the Federal Investigation Agency officials who foiled Col Joseph bid to leave the country and it must also be investigated as to why and for what objective the USA military plane was allowed to land at the airbase.

It also ordered the government to decide about adding his name to the Exit Control List, which controls the movement of people wanted by courts or those involved in corruption.

A day earlier, an Islamabad court had ruled his diplomatic immunity may not apply in the April 7 traffic accident in which the USA attache's vehicle hit a motorcycle, killing the 22-year-old driver, both papers reported.
