The confusion on the rules is actually quite common once you get outside the established western democracies.
Some of it is that they simply don't fully understand English to the point where they can translate their rules, sometimes it is that the rules are not well thought out and that a lot of possible permutations and combinations are not fully covered. This is very common when writing rules in a new area of regulation for them or the usual international standard rules different significantly from local custom i.ie banking rules. Sometimes it is a deliberate method of giving arbitrary power to local bureaucrats. Sometimes in an effort to CYA the local bureaucrats extend the rules so that they cannot be wrong in what they see as a bad way. (This one happens a lot in the west as well.)
Sometimes it is a combination of all of the above and more.
