Westin Grand Hotel in Kapstadt (früher Arabella Sheraton) von den USA auf "Schwarze Liste" gesetzt.

Vor einem Aufenthalt im bekannten 5 Star Hotel direkt am Kongress-Zentrum (International Convention Centre) in Kapstadt warnt das Konsulat der USA in Südafrika am 27. August 2010 in einem Rundschreiben. Von offenbar zahlreichen (nicht gewalttätigen) Diebstähle waren Anfang August mehrere USA-Staatsbürger und Regierungsmitglieder betroffen. Die südafrikanische Polizei untersucht die Zwischenfälle.

Im Rundschreiben, dass an in Südafrika lebendende USA-Bürger ging, lautet es wörtlich:

This message is to inform U.S. citizens that U.S. Government employees and contractors have been directed not to stay at the Westin Grand Cape Town located at Convention Square on Lower Long Street, Cape Town, until further notice. This directive was issued because of multiple theft reports from U.S. Government employees visiting the hotel. None of the reported thefts were violent in nature. The U.S. Mission in South Africa is investigating the situation in coordination with hotel administration and will advise all U.S. citizens of any change in this policy. Please note that this prohibition is for U.S. Government personnel travelling on official business and applies to this single location and does not apply to any other hotel sites.


 

Nachtrag:
die Warnung des USA Konsulates ist zurückgezogen worden!

 

The Westin Cape Town - 31 August 2010 - 15h00

Following our earlier press release, we now have confirmation of the reversal of the US Travel ban at The Westin Cape Town.

Safety and Security remains one of our primary focus areas and we are confident that our security procedures comply with that of international standards.  Although our finding into the alleged theft is inconclusive, the investigation is now closed and nobody from the hotel has been implicated.
