                        DIPLOMATIC LIST
                        FEBRUARY 1994



                           PREFACE

       This publication contains the names of the members of 
  the diplomatic staffs of all missions and their spouses. 
  Members of the diplomatic staff are the members of the staff 
  of the mission having diplomatic rank. These persons, with 
  the exception of those identified by asterisks, enjoy full 
  immunity under provisions of the Vienna Convention on 
  Diplomatic Relations. Pertinent provisions of the Convention 
  include the following:
  
                          Article 29
       The person of a diplomatic agent shall be inviolable. 
  He/she shall not be liable to any form of arrest or 
  detention. The receiving State shall treat him/her with due 
  respect and shall take all appropriate steps to prevent any 
  attack on his/her person, freedom, or dignity.
  
                          Article 31
       A diplomatic agent shall enjoy immunity from the 
  criminal jurisdiction of the receiving State. He/she shall 
  also enjoy immunity from civil and administrative 
  jurisdiction, except in the case of:
  
       (a)  a real action relating to private immovable 
  property situated in the territory of the receiving State, 
  unless he/she holds it on behalf of the sending State for 
  the purposes of the mission;
       (b)  an action relating to succession in which the 
  diplomatic agent is involved as executor, administrator, 
  heir, or legatee as a private person and not on behalf of 
  the sending State;
       (c)  an action relating to any professional or 
  commercial activity exercised by the diplomatic agent in the 
  receiving State outside of his/her official functions.
  
       A diplomatic agent's family members are entitled to the 
  same immunities unless they are United States nationals. 
  ASTERISKS (**) IDENTIFY UNITED STATES NATIONALS.
  
  
  NOTE:  Changes occur daily.  The status of personnel listed 
  in this publication should be verified with the Office of 
  Protocol.
