Oman regulator warns against defacing notes

Oman’s central bank has warned against the illegal practice of writing on bank notes, making ‘garlands’ out of them or otherwise defacing their appearance. The Central Bank of Oman said in a statement that some retail outlets have been found to be making and selling garlands, wreaths and arches made of national currency bank notes, while some members of the public have defiled notes by writing on them. Both practices are against the law and represent a defacement of national symbols, the central bank said. Evidently, any use of national banknotes and currency coins for other than circulation as public tender falls under penalty of law, it said in an announcement.
