FBI agent doesn’t enjoy diplomatic immunity: FO

Posted: May 12, 2014 in Current Affairs


ISLAMABAD: The Foreign Office said on Thursday that the FBI agent arrested in Karachi on Monday did not enjoy diplomatic immunity.

“He was not a diplomat and, therefore, had no immunity,” FO spokesperson Tasneem Aslam said at the weekly media briefing.

Joel Cox was arrested while attempting to board a flight for Islamabad, for carrying bullets, small knives and spy gadgets. The man was later identified as FBI official sent to Pakistan on a short-term assignment with the US embassy in Islamabad.

“He is here on a short-term visit visa and his visa is valid. The investigations are still continuing,” the spokesperson said.

Governments of both countries were in touch to resolve the matter, she added.
