Thank you for a very detailed, very interesting post, Allan.

One question, please.

Is there any way that a layman such as myself would know that "The Libyan
Economic Cooperation Bureau would be diplomatic=other, other=trade office
because it is accorded diplomatic status by bilateral agreement, not the
VCDR", or is this sort of thing only known to Govt / diplomatic staff?

Thanks

Graeme
