Diplomatinės atstovybės patalpų neliečiamybė ir jos užtikrinimo praktiniai aspektai.
The article deals with the content of one of the most fundamental diplomatic immunity – inviolability of diplomatic premises. The duties of the receiving state under international law as regards ensuring of this immunity, as well as certain aspects of fulfilling of these duties in the Republic of Lithuania are discussed too. The article focuses on the absolute nature of this immunity and, at the same time, – on the comprehensive analysis of the hitherto existing different practice of states when a receiving state for one reason or the other has violated the immunity of premises of foreign diplomatic missions. As a result of that analysis it is attempted to ascertain whether the existing international law sets any limits on absoluteness of the immunity in question in order to defend the interests of the receiving state and its people in the case when diplomatic premises are used for unlawful purposes, as well as to find out what are or could be those interests.
