In other respects, they may enjoy privileges and immunities only to the extent admitted by the host Member State. However, the host Member State must exercise its jurisdiction over those persons in such a manner as not to interfere unduly with the performance of the functions of the Permanent Mission.

4. Other members of the staff of the Permanent Mission and private servants who are nationals of or permanently resident in the host Member State shall enjoy privileges and immunities only to the extent admitted by the host Member state. However, the host Member state must exercise its jurisdiction over those persons in such a manner as not to interfere unduly with the performance of the functions of the Permanent Mission.

1. The officials of the Member States shall, while participating in official ASEAN activities or representing ASEAN in the Member States, enjoy the following privileges and immunities as are necessary for the exercise of their functions:

(d) the same facilities in respect of currency or exchange restrictions as are accorded to representatives of foreign governments on temporary official missions;

(e) the immunities and facilities in respect of their personal baggage as are accorded to diplomatic envoys.

2. In order to secure, for the officials of the Member States, complete freedom of speech and independence in the discharge of their duties, the immunity from legal process in respect of words spoken or written and all acts done by them in discharging their duties shall continue to be accorded, notwithstanding that the persons concerned are no longer the officials of the Member States.

3. Privileges and immunities are accorded to the officials of the Member States in order to safeguard the independent exercise of their functions in connection with ASEAN and not for the personal benefit of the individuals themselves. Consequently a Member State not only has the right but is under a duty to waive the immunity of its officials in any case where in the opinion of that Member State the immunity would impede the course of justice, and it can be waived without prejudice to the purposes for which the immunity is accorded.

4. The provisions of Paragraphs 1 and 2 of this Article are not applicable as between the officials of the Member States and the authorities of the Member State of which they are nationals or are permanently resident, or of which they are or have been the officials.

2. Member States shall ensure that the persons whom they have appointed or employed who are accorded privileges and immunities under this Agreement, respect the laws and regulations of the Member State in whose territory they are in, in a manner that is consistent with the privileges and immunities enjoyed by them.
