Attending To the Complaints

His Honour, the Prime Minister,

Referring to communication number 6079 from Dr. Dadfar, dated 14 Tir 1337 [5 July 1958] and its attached telegram, [I would like to] submit that the company has been watching the vendor of Shahin-Dej for some time, and it has become evident now that he has not been overcharging. The complaints received relate to the [religious] belief of the supplier. Although it should not have had any influence on his work, [he] was ordered to replace all the marketing employees with local Muslim employees.

With these changes that will take place within the next two weeks, it is hoped that motives for the complaints and the discontent of the inhabitants will be prevented.
