Hello my fellow RiotACTers
My (legally) parked car was sideswiped by another driver last night. They’ve managed to do quite a job on my poor little automobile.
Although the cheeky offender drove off without leaving their details, a passer by apparently witnessed the event and left me a note with the other vehicle’s number plate. According to that witness, the other vehicle’s number plate was allegedly “DC 87xx” (last couple of digits withheld to protect privacy).
The very helpful Police Officer I spoke with told me that DC number plates belong to diplomatic vehicles. This is probably quite obvious to those in the know but it was news to me.

According to the DFAT website, the 1st 2 digits after the “DC” prefix on a diplomatic plate (in my case the numbers “87”) indicate the Embassy which the car belongs to.
So, to cut a long story short, my question is this: Which Embassy does the number plate “DC 87xx” belong to?
As anyone who has read my previous left wing pinko bleeding heart posts might have gathered, I’m not the punitive type, but I’d just like to front up to the relevant Embassy and say “Oi, fix me car ya mugs” (if indeed the number plate as reported by the very kind witness, who I shall soon purchase a case of beer, is correct, of course this is yet to be established).
PS Is it Christmas holidays yet?
