Pakistan stops USA diplomat to fly out in Bagram-bound plane

Americans return empty handed after FIA bars 'killer' US diplomat from leaving Pakistan

The US Embassy in Islamabad has not commented regarding the report so far. Noting that Hall enjoyed diplomatic immunity, the court, however, asked the government to decide within two weeks whether or not Col Hall should be placed on the Exit Control List.

Hall is accused of running a red light on April 7 while driving an SUV and knocking over a Pakistani national on a motorcycle, killing him.

The latest blow to relations came on Saturday, when Pakistani authorities banned a U.S. military attache from leaving as planned, Pakistan's The Nation and Express Tribune newspapers reported.

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 goal the USA military plane was allowed to land at the airbase.

In a dramatic development in the United States diplomat case who crushed to death a biker in Islamabad, a special aircraft arrived at the Nur Khan Airbase on Saturday noon to take along Col. Joseph Emanuel who is facing travel restrictions after the April 7 incident.

When Col Hall reached the airbase with eight people from the U.S Embassy accompanying him, he was refused permission to board the aircraft, ostensibly under instructions from hardline elements of the Pakistan establishment. Later, the C-130 returned to Afghanistan without the "killer" diplomat.

Earlier on Friday, the Islamabad High Court (IHC) had ruled that US Defence and Air Attaché Colonel Emanual Joseph does not have absolute immunity.

Since President Donald Trump took office last January, US-Pakistan relations have soured considerably, with the administration cutting $1.3 billion in annual aid to Islamabad for security purposes.

"This is a development that could well develop into a full-blown crisis for relations if it's not resolved soon", said Michael Kugelman, a South Asia specialist at the Woodrow Wilson Center in Washington.

A spokesman for the USA embassy in Islamabad declined to comment on the events of Saturday.

Idris Baig, the father of man killed in the accident, said in an interview that he was satisfied with the current proceedings.

'My son will never come back and we will consult with our relatives and village community before negotiating the agreement.
