- Illegal Issues of Postage Stamps

UNIVERSAL

POSTAL UNION

Berne, 25 September 2000

International Bureau Circular

406

 
Dear Sir/Madam

The postal administration of ANGOLA asks me to inform you of the following:

"Our administration has been informed of the existence of several sets of illegal postage stamps issued by three companies located in Belgium, Great Britain and Lithuania.

"We would like to point out that all the stamps produced by these companies in the name of our country are illegal and that their circulation does harm to the Angolan and international postal services and to collectors. A list of the postage stamps concerned is given in the annex.

"The illegal issue of these postage stamps is contrary to the provisions of the Detailed Regulations of the UPU Convention and to the laws of the Republic of Angola. These fake postage stamps must not therefore be accepted as a means of postal prepayment."

Yours faithfully,

M S RAMAN
Assistant Director-General
