His Honour Ayatollah Shahroudi

Esteemed Head of the Judiciary

With greetings and wishes for your success

We hereby attach a copy of the letter number Y-D 1773 dated 15 Aban 1379 [5 November 2000] from the Islamic Revolutionary court, which stipulates that the land and properties of some individuals have been confiscated on the grounds of their adherence of specific sect and because they have migrated to Isfahan.  For illustration, we send you the complaint letter sent to the Committee by one of the individuals among tens of people [whose property] has been confiscated, so that you could issue any necessary orders for action to be taken in accordance with the Constitution and other approved ordinances.
