Dated 16 Mordad 1380 [7 August 2001]

 

Mr. Shiraj

Head of Administration of the Judiciary

With greetings

We attach herewith a copy of letter number 80-3220, dated 8 Mordad 1380 [30 July 2001], from the Committee for Investigation and Oversight of Enforcement of the Constitution and its enclosures in relation to confiscation of properties according to the judgments of Islamic Revolutionary Courts. The letter bears the following notes of the honourable president:

“It is astonishing that the head of the judiciary is even unhappy to receive the matters which has [been] sent to the honourable president and his appointed Committee[2] and then has been forwarded [for follow-up] to the head of the judicial branch.  [He] even refuses to show the minimum good will and understanding [?]. I suppose the matter has not been properly been conveyed to him.  Should the transfer of a complaint or grievance be considered as interference in the judiciary?!”

[It] is enclosed for the attention of the head of the judiciary.
