|Diplomatic Consul Building|
The Diplomatic Consul Building was where Arjen Rudd's office was located, which represented the South African white community. As a result, it was the site of several protests involving apartheid in the nation and attempting to end it immediately.
Hans escaped from Martin Riggs and Roger Murtaugh and the LAPD after a long chase, ending with him crashing his car. He would return to the Consul building and report to Arjen Rudd in his office, with his enforcer, Pieter Vorstedt at his side. Rudd was disappointed to hear Hans had lost several million dollars in krugerrands back at the crash site, although he would spare him despite his mistake. But this would prove to be a lie as Vorstedt would shoot Hans dead with his gun.
The next day in the office, Rudd and Vorstedt were able to get a hold of Roger Murtaugh's profile by stealing it somehow. Rudd told Vorstedt to go to Murtaugh's house and bring two henchmen with him as they would proceed to tie him and his wife Trish up.
When it becomes apparent the police are now on to him and his men, Rudd schedules an appointment with his associates after being followed by Riggs. Despite telling a security guard to get rid of him, Riggs joins the hundreds of protesters outside the building and Rudd can see this through his security camera.
