Will Diplomatic Immunity, if Approved, Give Grace Mugabe a Pass?

Zimbabwe has requested diplomatic immunity for the First Lady Grace Mugabe, who faces a charge of criminal assault. Mugabe is accused of attacking 20-year-old model Gabriella Engels with an electrical extension cord after the model went to see the Mugabes' sons, Robert and Chatunga at a Sandton hotel. President Robert Mugabe, who is in South Africa to attend the SADC summit, is expected to intervene on the matter.
