Statement by French MEA spokesperson

We have been informed of the allegation against one of our employees posted at the Consulate General of France in Bangalore and have since been in contact with the local authorities.

An investigation is underway. We cannot, therefore, comment on this at this stage.

The Vienna Convention on Consular Relations (1963) does not provide for immunity of jurisdiction for acts committed outside the exercise of consular duties (Article 43).
