Re: Statute of limitations
"No, the embassy is not in Ecuador, it's in London. Just because the embassy is there, doesn't make it Ecuadoran sovereign territory."
No, the embassy is in the sovereign state of Ecuador. Just because it's on UK sovereign territory doesn't make it not part of a different sovereign state.
The embassy is in the embassy building, is in the sovereign state of Ecuador, in London, on UK sovereign territory.
I accept your angry rejoinder that "Ecuador" means at least 2 quite different things. A state, and the territory of that state.
