CHAD - Illegal Issues of Postage Stamps



Berne, 2 january 2001

International Bureau Circular


Dear Sir/Madam

The postal administration of CHAD asks me to inform you that it has just discovered that several issues of postage stamps have been illegally printed on behalf of Chad by companies located in Belgium, Lithuania and the United States of America.

These include the following postage stamp sets:

The Chadian Posts and Savings Company strongly protests against these illegal and unofficial issues and asks the UPU to help it put an end to the sale of these pirated postage stamps by informing its international partners.

The Chadian Posts and Savings Company reserves the right to prosecute the forgers with all the legal means at its disposal.

Yours faithfully,

Assistant Director General

More information about the illegal issues can be obtained directly from the UPU, Mrs. Maria Libera.
