Canada pulls 41 diplomats from India due to threat of losing immunity

Sudan Events – Sumaya Sayed

Canada has pulled 41 diplomats from India after New Delhi threatened to strip them of diplomatic immunity “Friday”.

Diplomatic immunity is in effect a shield that protects diplomats serving in other countries from being arrested and is guaranteed under international law.

Relations between the two countries deteriorated since Sept. 18 after Prime Minister Justin Trudeau publicly accused India of being involved in the assassination of Canadian Sikh Hardeep Singh Nijjar. He was gunned down by two masked assailants in the parking lot of a Sikh temple in Surrey, British Columbia, on June 19. No arrests have been made.
