Diplomatic immunity and the Khashoggi case

Updated : October 24, 2018 10:48 AM IST

EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini called the Khashoggi case a "shocking violation" of Article 55 of the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations, which states that consular premises "shall not be used in any manner incompatible with the exercise of consular functions."
While the Saudi Consulate is on Turkish territory, local police could not enter without Saudi consent. Consular premises are considered "inviolable" under the Vienna treaties, and the only instances when local authorities can enter without permission is "in case of fire or other disaster requiring prompt protective action."
UN human rights chief Michelle Bachelet urged Saudi Arabia to waive the "inviolability or immunity" of people or premises under the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations and reveal what happened to the Saudi writer.
