Diplomatic privileges and immunity are exceptions provided for by international law under the Vienna Convention. The aim is to provide a representative of one country in another with immunity from prosecution or undue restriction in the conduct of their affairs while in the host country. However, diplomats can be expelled by the host, if the latter judges it to be prudent to do so. However, all these privileges on work on the understanding that in exchange the diplomat is expected to obey all the laws governing the country in which he is hosted (King, 2008)
