It’s not just US-Russian relations that have devolved to the level of spontaneous diplomat expulsion. According to Reuters, New Zealand has expelled an attache at the U.S. Embassy after Washington refused to waive his right to diplomatic immunity in relation to a police investigation of a potentially serious crime, after an “incident” which gave him a broken nose and a black eye, media and authorities said. New Zealand Television said the man had worked alongside New Zealand’s intelligence service, the Government Communications Security Bureau, which is a member of the so-called Five Eyes signals-intelligence alliance binding the U.S., the U.K., Australia, New Zealand and Canada.
In other words, the unnamed diplomat was most likely a US spy – which would explain why the government refused to strip him of his immunity – who got into a fight, and quickly vacated the country.
