Tourists Arrested In Kazakhstan For Wearing 'Borat' Style Mankinis

A group of Czech tourists have been arrested in Kazakhstan for donning Borat-style mankinis in the middle of the capital city.

The men were in the capital Astana when they stripped off in front of large "I (heart) Astana" sign as a joke.

Local police spokeswoman Sofya Kylyshbekova confirmed that the six were arrested for appearing "obscene in a public place" and given a very nice fine of 22,500 KZT (£51/$67).

The maximum penalty for hooliganism is up to a year in prison or in a "corrective labor" camp, although these punishments are usually for violent acts.

"On Friday citizens of the Czech Republic were detained in a auto park near an exhibition centre while posing in an indecent manner", said Sofya Kilyshebkova, a spokeswoman for the Kazakhstani interior ministry.
