Bazargani Bank Constructs a New Building

Two years ago, while activities against the Baha’is were underway in Tehran, a group of wealthy Baha’is started selling their properties in Tehran and in the Nawnahalan Company that belonged to the Baha’is. They sold a portion of [the Nawnahalan] buildings that were situated in front of the Ministry of the Interior, to the Bazargani Bank for the sum of ten million rials.  The aforementioned Bank is now planning to construct another building in that place to expand its market.  The plans are prepared and 7500 meters of land will go under construction.  However, its goodwill [money] has been in dispute. The Bank is willing to pay three million and two hundred thousand rials, while the tenants are demanding a higher amount and meanwhile the [dispute] file has been referred to the office of the rental properties [tribunal].
