Charges dismissed against Indian diplomat Devyani Khobragade

Diplomatic immunity is a strange thing to me. It means that a diplomat in a foreign country can do things that would see a normal person arrested for and not go to jail, or get out of jail easily. Such is the case with an Indian diplomat recently named Devyani Khobragade.

This female diplomat was arrested and reportedly strip searched by federal agents in New York City back in December reports News 4 Jax. The arrest and search came after the diplomat was accused of lying on a visa application. The lie had to do with the amount of money the diplomat paid her maid.

The woman was indicted on January 9 by a federal grand jury on one count of visa fraud and one count of making false statements. The woman and her legal team filed a motion to dismiss the charges after the woman claimed she had diplomatic immunity during the time she was arrested.

The court agreed that the woman had immunity and dismissed all charges. Devyani Khobragade is a Counselor to the Permanent mission of India to the UN. She was appointed to that position one day before her indictment was handed down.

"Even if Khobragade had no immunity at the time of her arrest and has none now, her acquisition of immunity during the pendency of proceedings mandates dismissal," U.S. District Judge Shira Scheindlin wrote.

"The government may not proceed on an indictment obtained when Khobragade was immune from the jurisdiction of the court," Scheindlin continued.
