Banamar-Capizzi v. Embassy of the Popular Democratic Republic of Algeria (1989), 87 ILR 56

Ratio:

A declaration from the ambassador or other competent authority regarding the diplomatic status of state assets must be accepted on its face.

Analysis:

The Italian Court of Cassation commented that, where the funds in question appear to be devoted to financing the expenses necessary to fulfil sovereign purposes, "any attempt to check if such funds are effectively used in whole or in part for those purposes would inevitably result in undue interference in the affairs of the diplomatic mission."
