A Pakistani court ordered the government Tuesday not to release an American official arrested in the shooting deaths of two Pakistanis despite U.S. insistence that he has diplomatic immunity and has been detained illegally.
But Azhar Sadique, a senior constitutional lawyer, said the court was overreaching — behavior for which it has been criticized in the past.
"As far as the issue of diplomatic immunity is concerned, this issue must be decided by the two [national] governments or by the international court of justice," Mr. Sadique said.
