United States defense attache leaves Pakistan

USA defence attaché Col Joseph Emanuel Hall, who was earlier barred from flying out on an American military aircraft by the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA), was reportedly allowed by the government to leave on Monday, DawnNewsTV reported quoting diplomatic sources.

Richard Snelsire, a spokesman for the U.S embassy in Islamabad, did not wish to comment when contacted by Anadolu Agency.

Two security officials said on Saturday that the plane at Nur Khan air base arriving to carry U.S. military attache Col. Joseph Emanuel Hall out of Pakistan has returned after he failed to get clearance. The diplomat has since left for Afghanistan on a special flight.

Colonel hall left the country after the United States refused to withdraw his diplomatic immunity.

A USA diplomat involved in a fatal accident was allowed by Pakistani authorities to leave the country on Monday (May 14), just days after officials here prevented him from boarding a United States military plane, according to U.S. officials.

Last month, Colonel Hall, ran down three persons in Daman-e-Koh, north of Islamabad. But the diplomat was not arrested because of his diplomatic immunity.

Diplomatic relations between the two sides have hit a low ebb since U.S. President Donald Trump took office in January previous year, mainly due to a clash of interests in war-torn Afghanistan.

Police have also handed over all records related to Colonel Hall to USA officials. A writ petition filed in the Islamabad High Court was dismissed on Monday. It had subsequently asked the government to decide within two weeks whether or not Col Hall should be placed on the ECL. After the assurance, Hall was allowed to leave yesterday and apparently flew to Afghanistan initially to go to America, according to sources.
