Topic: Swiss say stray Venezuela golf balls violate Vienna Convention


By Girish Gupta CARACAS (Reuters) - A dispute has been tee'd off between Switzerland's ambassador to Venezuela and a neighboring elite golf club, after a banner appeared at the diplomat's residence warning that golf balls injuring or killing anyone inside would violate the Vienna Convention. The large placard, located on the residence's fence near the third of the Caracas Country Club's 18 holes, begins by explaining that the residence is considered Swiss territory. "Launching balls into this residence is a danger to whoever is within Swiss territory and a violation of the Vienna Convention if a golf ball injures or kills anyone on Swiss soil." Ambassador Sabine Ulmann told Reuters she had nothing to say on the matter.
