Based on the documents in the file and relying upon the contents of court orders 19628, dated 13 Dey 1368 [3 January 1990], and 27156, dated 17 Bahman 1371 [6 February 1993], it appears that the property belonging to the members of the Azami family, who have fled the country, had been confiscated for the benefit of the Execution of Imam Khomaini’s Order [EIKO] and the order has been carried out. In question is the properties belonging to Mohammad Azami, the younger son, at land located in [redacted], which Mr. Hosein Azami, son of Haydar, claims to have purchased. Reviewing the written documents by the petitioner, the recorded statements by the aforementioned individual and the esteemed representative of the beneficiary foundation in the meetings of 12 Aban 1376 [3 November 1997] and 13 Dey 1376 [3 January 1998], and the revised interpretation of the views expressed by the official expert of the Prosecutor’s Office on 24 Aban 1377 [15 November 1998] and 5 Azar 1377 [26 November 1998] all have been carefully considered. Also, certification of the seller’s signature under the confession letter of 18 Esfand 1354 [8 March 1976], and evidence that Mr. Hosein Azami with his family have resided for a period of close to 23 years at the aforementioned property (and it appears that a bill of sale has been produced between them in the usual customary manner). Therefore, the right of the aforementioned individual to the stated property is established in view of this court and the above-mentioned residence does not [sic] count as the property belonging to the defendant, Mohammad Azami, the young son. Therefore, according to legal procedures, the transfer of [redacted] to the name of Mr. Hosein Azami is allowable in view of this court.
