IIRC, Mark has Barrayaran diplomatic immunity by ACC, or the Parole Officers would
have tried to drag him off too. Ah, here:
““If you are referring to the dangerous lunatic known as Lord Mark Pierre Vorkosigan, Miss, I tried. Believe me, I tried. I spent a week and a half trying to get the documentation. He carries a Class III Diplomatic Immunity that covers him for nearly everything short of outright murder. In addition, I found I had only to pronounce his last name correctly to produce the most damn-all stone wall obtuseness from every Barrayaran clerk, secretary, embassy officer and bureaucrat I encountered. For a while, I thought I was going mad. At last, I became reconciled to my despair.”
"The medications helped, too, I thought, sir," Muno observed amiably. Gustioz glowered at him.”
