Turkmenistan - Illegal Issues of Postage Stamps



Berne, 29 May 2000

International Bureau Circular


Dear Sir/Madam

The postal administration of TURKMENISTAN asks me to inform you that sheets of postage stamps belonging to the EURO 2000 European Football Championship issue, with a face value of 120.00 TMM, are unofficial stamp issues not issued by Turkmenistan.

The above stamps were manufactured in violation of the Detailed Regulations of the UPU Convention and the legislation of Turkmenistan. Consequently, they cannot be accepted as a means of postal prepayment.

Yours faithfully,

Assistant Director-General

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