Group affidavit of local residents

 

Dated 27/09/1360 [18 December 1981]

 

I request the respected residents of Hemmatabad-e Sistaniha (former Sazman Monajjem) who know me to witness this affidavit that “I, Hossein-Ali Sabeti, son of Molla-Ali, born in 1297(1918-1919) in Dooghabad, Torbat-e Heydarieh, came to this area with my family around 1332[1953-1954] which is 29 years ago, at the time when these lands were everglades and marshes and I worked as a farmer and labourer. As the result of the agricultural work, my wife and my child lost their health and I have been left with two sick and disabled individuals, who are now dependent on me.”  With many thanks and appreciation

 

With respect Hossein-Ali Sabeti Dooghabadi

We, the undersigned and the residents of Hemmat-Abad Sistaniha are fully aware that Mr Hossein-Ali Sabetihas been living here for 29 years and has been working as a farmer.
