Islamabad [Pakistan], Apr 24, ANI: Pakistan places American Diplomat Colonel Joseph Emanuel hall, who ran down three persons in near Islamabad earlier this month on 'black list' and thus he cannot leave the country.
Pakistan's Deputy Attorney General (DAG) Raja Khalid has informed the IHC that placing the diplomat's name on the Exit Control List (ECL) is a very lengthy process. As of now, he can neither be arrested nor can he be tried, reported the Dawn.
Earlier this month Colonel Joseph Emanuel Hall, Defence and Air attache at the US Embassy in Pakistan ran down three persons in Daman-e-Koh, north of Islamabad, ratcheting up the ongoing visa/diplomatic rift between the two countries.
He was reportedly sloshed while driving the white Land Cruiser that hit three motorcyclists at a traffic signal.
One of the riders was dead, while the other two were critically wounded, who were taken to the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS).
