16 year delay costs 16 kronor

The Swedish Post Office is demanding 16 kronor, more than two dollars, as a fee for a postcard to an address in Ljusdal in central Sweden. The card doesn’t have enough postage, the postal authorities say.

But, the local newspaper Ljusdals-Posten reports, the recipient of the postcard is pointing out that the 2 kronor 80 öre in postage it bears was enough for delivery, when it was dropped into a mailbox 16 years ago, in November 1994.

So far no comment from the Post Office on where the card has been these past 16 years.
