Canada investigates rape allegation against Afghan diplomat

Earlier this week, Mehdi Arash Yama, son of Afghanistan’s acting ambassador in Canada, was reported to be accused of raping a 16-year-old girl in February this year.
Canada’s CBC News on Friday said that Ottawa police’s sexual assault and child abuse unit began investigation in the case.
It suggested that since the diplomat’s family had been enjoying diplomatic immunity, the Canadian authorities asked for permission from the Afghan government to question the suspect, which was granted.
The suspect has obtained a prominent criminal defence lawyer but has yet to be interviewed by police, the broadcaster said.
If charges are warranted following the investigation, Canadian authorities would once again request a second waiver from Kabul to make an arrest.
