Translation from Farsi

TO THE CENTRAL COMMITTEE OF THE COMMUNIST PARTY OF THE SOVIET UNION

Dear Comrades,

We hereby address to you with a request of refuge on the territory of the Soviet Union for members of the Organization of Mujahadin of the Iranian People, who after their exposure by Khomeini's criminal regime, and in some cases because of their loss of connections with OMIP, are forced to cross the Iran-Soviet border into the USSR for their final departure for other countries. This is necessary in order to organize their sending and delivery in as short a time as possible after their arrival in the USSR in accordance with instructions from the Organization of Mujahadin of the Iranian People.

With gratitude,

Farhad Olfat

Politburo Member, Representative of the Organization of Mujahadin of the Iranian People
