Newsline: Danish diplomat eludes demands for compensation in Uganda

Patrick Olany, an employee of Bayport financial services, was allegedly knocked down by a speeding Nissan Xtrail CD 3022U, belonging to the Royal Danish Embassy, along Acacia Avenue, opposite Finca Bank. Due to the injury, he lost his job. According to him, the state Attorney wrote to the ministry of foreign affairs inquiring about the driver of the car and it was revealed that Jacobsen Majbrit Holm, a diplomat from the Danish embassy, was the one driving it. The matter is currently being handled by Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Kampala. Ambassadors enjoy diplomatic immunity from arrests and prosecution. According to the Vienna convention on diplomatic relationships, an ambassador or diplomat can be sued or arrested if the sending country waives the immunity, in favor of public interest.
