Ecuador tried to make Julian Assange a diplomat

1961 Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations.

Article 27. The host country must permit and protect free communication between the diplomats of the mission and their home country. A diplomatic bag must never be opened even on suspicion of abuse. A diplomatic courier must never be arrested or detained.

I posted it for a joke but it seems it's actually true. Who knew?

So does that technically mean if he's given a bag he can't be arrested?
