Pakistanis again have sold their mother for dollars

Military Attache Col Joseph Emanuel Hall left for the United States on Monday evening, the US Embassy confirmed.

On April 7, Colonel Joseph Emanuel Hall ran a red light and rammed into a motorcycle killing a Pakistani civilian. He was let go by police officials in Islamabad after the accident as the law — Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations, 1961 — provided the diplomat immunity from criminal prosecution.

According to sources, the local police had handed over all record related to Colonel Hall to US officials.

Hall is a certified envoy who enjoys diplomatic immunity, the sources added. Pakistan's criminal, civil, and administrative laws are not applicable to the US envoy.

The US government had decided against withdrawing Hall's diplomatic immunity, said sources.
