Mexican Military Attache Sexually Harass Local Female Employee at Mexican Embassy in Seoul
Diplomat Leaves S. Korea, Refusing Police Summon
The Mexican Embassy in Seoul is protected by local S. Korean police.

A Mexican military attache suddenly left South Korea as he was summoned to the local police for sexually harassing local Korean girl employed at the Mexican Embassy in Seoul, the Jongno Police Station in downtown Seoul announced on August 16, 2017.

The unidentified Mexican diplomat refused the police order twice to report to the police station for investigation early this month, the police station said on the day.

The police said that the Mexican military attache left South Korea for Mexico earlier this month after he refused to report to the police for the probe two times consecutively.

The Mexican diplomat told the local police that he had the diplomatic immunity when he was ordered to report to the police, according to the Jongno Police Station.

The police was investigation the Mexican military officer for the sexual assault.

He was suspected of sexually assaulting a Korean female employee working at the Korean Embassy in Seoul three times between June of 2016 and January of 2017.

The local police said that there is no way of investing the diplomat by force because of the diplomatic immunity.

In the meantime, South Korean Foreign Ministry reportedly asked the Mexican Embassy for the cooperation with the police investigation.

Diplomatic immunity ensures that diplomats are not subject to the jurisdiction of local courts and other authorities.

Based on the provisions of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations of 1961 and the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations of 1963, diplomats and their immediate family members are immune from all criminal prosecution and most civil law suits.
