It may be prudent to find Chengetai and as him to help. I've forwarded him
your message.

> Dear all
> A problem has arisen for at least three organizations with printed matter
> for the IGF. All three shipments are blocked by customs awaiting either
> paperwork, or a large amount of money (2000 TL for the IRPC shipment). This
> situation involves three courier services; UPC, TNT, and FedEx. We are all
> getting different information about how much, and how long things will take.
> For the IRPC booklets, the printed booklets, the cost to clear today has
> been quoted as 2000 TL.
> We are launching the Turkish edition tomorrow in WS83 in any case as the
> Booklet project includes the digital as well as the printed formats. But we
> have the Arabic and English, as well as the Turkish printed editions ready
> for circulation here so the priority is to clear it.
> Any ideas about how we raise 2000 TL (about 600 GBP or 925 USD).
> Meanwhile, people here in Istanbul have been working hard on our behalf
> but the feeling here is that without paying, the shipment will not be
> released at all, if in time this week.
