    Wi vrai sa. Et seki pli pire, to gagne 1 billet dechirE dans bis, to kapav al paie lamann sa.

    But then, I wonder, in court it was the man’s word against the policeman’s word non?

    How do they know for sure that the policeman got crazy and tore a note and say, “mo fer toi paie lamann enkor la macro si to pa briber moi”

    Enfin, probablement dans sa cas la, boug la in fer 1 coutt grand noir em, mais la lois r sa truk ki 1 lapolis so parole assE pou fer toi coupable 1 truk mistrant. Mari misuse ena ar sa.

    Coins can be pierced with drillers :p, people used to do it during coin phone days, tiring a nylon string to the coin and slowly letting it slide down without letting it slide down the point of no return.

    … and can you tell your fan club why you did not display any photo of a proper bank note, like this, dear Sir? :-)

  • Yashvin Awootar

    I will consider the request for a real picture next time :)

  • Akash Gura Goredo

    I prefer breaking it to them, then:

    Section 43A entitled “Reproduction of currency notes, bank notes or coins” has been added to the Bank of Mauritius Act 2004 in December 2013, which requires

    “every person, who intends to use in any size, scale or colour, any photograph of, or any drawing or design resembling, any Mauritius currency note, bank note or coin (…) in any advertisement or on any merchandise or product which that person (…)otherwise distributes, to seek the prior written permission of the Bank to that effect.”
    So, dear peuple admirable de Plaisir Country, and especially dear fellow followers of Yasvinblogs, don’t say you didn’t know: it is illegal to display any photo of a bank note without the written permission from Manou.

    Tandé la?

    Only for advertising or selling, neither of which is applicable here.

    contign lir bro/sis:

    “… or product which (…) that person (…) otherwise distributes (…)”

    The product in this sense is the blog, and the product is being distributed online…

    That’s the nice part of regulations: you need to read deep and wide, not suit your own narrow purpose for escaping it. That’s what bad lawyers do to get your money and let you down…

  • tambourette

    “…product being distributed…”

    I think this was written with physical products in mind, for e.g. distributing/selling t-shirts with the image of a bank note on it.
    Describing a blog as a product being distributed is a stretch.

    The whole idea behind it seems to be not to commercially benefit from it.

    As you wish then.
    A vos risques et périls…

  • Yashvin Awootar

    I will nevertheless stay on the safe side :-)
