LAHORE: The foreign ministry on Monday informed the Lahore High Court (LHC) that Raymond Davis had a diplomatic passport and was given an official business visa but they did not confirm whether the American gunman enjoyed diplomatic immunity.
The LHC questioned the foreign ministrys stance and said it was not being clear on the matter.
Chief Justice Ejaz Hussain then disposed off the petitions questioning Daviss immunity, saying the issue will now be settled in the trial court.
The court also asked the foreign ministry to submit a reply on a petition challenging Vienna convention.
Davis faces double-murder charges for gunning down two men in Lahores Mozang area on January 27, 2011, and has been a source of strained relations between Pakistan and the United States.
