Telegraph [to] Tehran

 

San`ati Bank of Iran

When I returned from Tehran, I observed the telegraph [No] 13672. I strongly deny its content and I am afraid that, contrary to the bank’s impression, the incompetence of the Shahi Factories is creating these problems. If the bank has conveyed similar issues to His Excellency the Prime Minister, I regret that it has been without any deliberation and investigation.

Since, Mr. Mohandes [Engineer] Shahidzadeh has neither informed me nor provided me with any report, I instructed the formation of a commission of enquiry to investigate and clarify the matter.
