Sacha Baron Cohen offers to pay 'Borat' mankini fines

AKIPRESS.COM - Hollywood actor Sacha Baron Cohen has offered to pay fines for six Czech tourists who were fined in Kazakhstan for wearing Borat-style mankinis.

The group had posed for photos in the capital city of Astana.

The tourists had been fined 22,500 tenge ($67) each for their minor hooliganism.

The notorious one-piece was made famous by the English actor's character, Borat, a fictional Kazakh TV presenter.

"To my Czech mates who were arrested. Send me your details and proof that it was you, and I'll pay your fine," the comedian wrote on Facebook.
