Pakistani police book US Embassy officer for ‘interference’

Islamabad police registered a case against the Chief Security Officer at the US embassy, for what it described as unnecessary interference in the police official duty and to stop the police from shifting the diplomat and his car to the police station.

:: Islamabad police have charged a US Embassy security officer for trying to stop the arrest of an American diplomat whose car had injured a bike rider on Sunday.

A Toyota Jeep driven by diplomat Chad Rex Ausburn hit motorcyclist Nazakaat Awan, who was taken to the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS), according to a police report seen by News Agency. Awan is in a stable condition, a PIMS spokesman said.

Police investigators later blamed him for the accident and released Ausburn, but registered a case against Syed Timor Iqbal, chief security officer at the US Embassy, for “unnecessary interference” in Ausburn’s arrest.

The police report said Iqbal had “committed a crime.” He “misbehaved, attacked and pushed me,” police constable Tariq said in the report.

A US Embassy vehicle driven by Col. Joseph Emanual Hall, defense and air attaché, killed a Pakistani motorcyclist and injured another in Islamabad on April 7.

The federal government last week told the Islamabad High Court that Hall cannot be tried in Pakistan because of diplomatic immunity.

But Deputy Attorney General Raja Khalid told the court that Hall has been blacklisted and cannot leave Pakistan. The US Embassy spokesman did not reply to an News Agency email seeking his comments.
