Immunity from civil jurisdiction

18.03.2016. 15:21

A diplomatic mission, consular post, diplomatic agent, consular officer or member of administrative or technical staff may receive a summons in a civil case. If a privileged person is summoned to appear in a Latvian court of law, he should not await developments but should engage an attorney immediately. The Ministry will be willing, upon request, to give informal advice to diplomatic missions on how to deal with these matters.
