[ Presenting plain-text part of multi-format email ] Subj: [arabmediawatch] Books to Iraq Date: 07/03/03 12:55:38 GMT Standard Time From: <A HREF="mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org">email@example.com</A> Reply-to: <A HREF="mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org">email@example.com</A> To: <A HREF="mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org">email@example.com</A> Sent from the Internet (Details) I wonder if anyone can help. I work in a language school in Oxford as Director of Studies. A couple of months ago I received a letter from an Iraqi school teacher asking for help with books and general school resources. As we had just had a few changes at school, I had some books which I no longer needed. I packed them up and took to the PO. I had left the parcel open so that the PO assistant could see that what I was sending were simply books. I was told by the PO Asst that I was not allowed to send any parcels to Iraq without a licence from the DTI. I could send letters, but not parcels. I tried to contact the DTI, first by e-mail, then by telephone and finally by snail mail. The written communiaction I sent was not indignant at all - all very polite. As I have received no reply from the DTI, I am wondering if anyone at AMW has any idea how I might get these books to Iraq. Thanks Paul Harvey, The Annex, 540, Banbury Road, Oxford, OX2 8EG. _______________________________________________ Sent via the discussion list of the Campaign Against Sanctions on Iraq.
