On ITV tonight, going out after the 10 0’Clock news, there is a major Exposure programme about the widespread abuse of the ‘diplomatic bag’ by international diplomats in London and elsewhere, and by a wider abuse of the principle of ‘diplomatic immunity.’ The documentary makers went undercover and the results are very revealing. During the programme, I give extensive descriptions of the evolution and principle of such ‘immunity’ and of the ‘bag’ and, as an ex diplomat, tell stories about what I witnessed in New York at the UN and throughout the foreign Embassy community. See link below and attachment from UK Sunday Times recommending the programme one of the TV highlights of the week. Broadcast time 10.35pm.
