Diplo­mat is free after boob grope

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A DIPLO­MAT who fled po­lice after he al­legedly groped a woman in a bar will not face charges be­cause his job means he en­joys immunity from pros­e­cu­tion.

Su­danese of­fi­cial Has­san Salih, 36, is re­ported to have grabbed a 23-year-old woman’s breasts and but­tocks while partying at Bar None in New York.

When the al­leged vic­tim com­plained, the bar’s bouncer grabbed hold of Salih un­til po­lice could ar­rive.

Dur­ing ques­tion­ing, Salih tried to run away – but of­fi­cers even­tu­ally caught up with him and he was ar­rested.

Salih then pro­duced a di­plo­matic immunity card.

After in­ves­ti­ga­tors con­firmed he was an em­ployee for the United Na­tions, they had no choice but to let him walk free.
