this when UN is headquartered in NY. It is amazing how NY and SD can throw Rulebook at all but fact remains that even this uniform application is only for few. It is difficult to imagine no one knew a thing about diplomatic immunity when UN is headquartered in NY for decades, but SoP for NY and diplomatic security involves NY style arrest, of Indian lady diplomat dropping kids to school.
All this high standard SoP didn't work in case of arrest of Indian diplomat's daughter after some Chinese student was caught during investigation! The only standard seems to be, including in NY where UN is headquartered, is what is mentioned in NY style SoP of arrest.
