Dear Hussein The information given to you is correct. You need an export license to send any thing to Iraq. Personal letters are exempted. I am sure that these postal measures are not intended to harm the civilian population of Iraq .... but are taken to deter Iraq from using the postal service in its efforts to develop WMD.! There are three ways to send the items listed in your message. 1- Write the Baghdad address in Arabic including Baghdad, Iraq. Then in English write Jordan. The post office will think you are sending the message to Jordan. 2- Write the Baghdad Address then Amman Jordan. Write on the envelope in Arabic "Please forward to Baghdad" 3- Write the Baghdad address then write Baghdad, Jordan, I know this is stupid,. I think the post office will look at the country (Jordan) and thats all If every thing fails you can write a nice letter to the child, Sorry kid no Jelly sweets, no crayons, no colouring books because Iraq is run by Saddam Hussein!. I guarantee you that She, the kid, will laugh. The whole thing is laughable Ghazwan Al-Mukhtar Baghdad, Iraq ----- Original Message ----- From: "Greater Manchester Coalition Against Sanctions and War" <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: <MCR_Coalition@yahoo.co.uk> Sent: Wednesday, March 20, 2002 12:44 AM Subject: [casi] Jelly Sweets and Crayons. > > Hi all, > Has anybody out there ever had the listed items > below, prevented from being sent to child > relatives/friends or similar to Iraq? > > I was told I could not send to my cousins the > following: > 3xpackets Jelly sweets. > 2x packets of crayons. > 2x colouring books. > > I was also informed that I would have to apply for an > export liscense to send them. for more information > please phone 0161 286 7950. > > yours sincerely, > Hussein Al-alak. > > __________________________________________________ > Do You Yahoo!? > Everything you'll ever need on one web page > from News and Sport to Email and Music Charts > http://uk.my.yahoo.com > > _______________________________________________ > Sent via the discussion list of the Campaign Against Sanctions on Iraq. > To unsubscribe, visit http://lists.casi.org.uk/mailman/listinfo/casi-discuss > To contact the list manager, email email@example.com > All postings are archived on CASI's website: http://www.casi.org.uk > > _______________________________________________ Sent via the discussion list of the Campaign Against Sanctions on Iraq.
