Bank Accounts and Premises of Permanent Mission to the United Nations in 2011

United States views on international law (based on the document “Digest of U.S. Practice in International Law”): In August of 2011, the United States filed a statement of interest in a case against the Republic of Congo's Permanent Mission to the United Nations (“the Mission”) and other defendants in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York. Avelar v. J. Cotoia Construction Inc. 11-02172 (E.D.N.Y.). This case had been removed to federal court after a New York state court had entered a default judgment against the Mission for injuries allegedly sustained by a construction worker who had been working on the ambassador's residence. The plaintiff had secured a freeze on the Mission's bank accounts and liens on the Mission premises and the ambassador's property. In the section of the statement of interest excerpted below, the United States asserted immunity from execution for the Mission's property (footnotes and citations to the record have been omitted). The section of the statement of interest relating to service of process is excerpted in section 5.a. infra. The statement of interest in its entirety is available at (internet link) state.gov/s/l/c8183.htm.
