US officials have dug up a million dollar question as to why she hid her status from the police before her arrest in New York on December 12. What do you say about it?
If she had told the police that she had enjoyed full diplomatic immunity at the time of her arrest, the police would have asked her to prove with documents and had swhe done so, she would not have been arrested.

In absence of these facts, she was arrested.
