to Cde. A. A. SMIRNOV


In reply to your Nº 25-3-103 of 19 January we report the following:


Even before receipt of the statement of Iranian political émigré A. F. Serabi, which he sent to G. M. Malenkov, the Tauzsky Rayon Committee of the Azerbaijan CP took steps to reinstate A. F. Serabi to work in a hospital cafeteria and he has been working there as a head chef since 2 January 1955.


As Cde. Dun'yamaliyev, the Secretary of the Tauzsky Rayon Party Committee, reports in his 23 March 1955 memo, the facts described in A. F. Serabi's statement were checked in detail and appropriate measures were taken regarding them. As regards Iranian political émigrés being removed from the trading network Jami Nowruz Eypullakh ogly actually was removed from a tearoom in 1954 on 26 October 1954 for violation of the trading rules, but he has been working as a salesperson of a store at a cement plant since 31 December 1954. G. G. Navani, a store salesperson at the Tauzsky MTS [Machine-Tractor Station], was removed from work for the theft of 8,322 rubles and his case was sent to the procurator.


I. G. Muzhasinbi and Sh. A. Guliyev were removed from work for violation of the rules of Soviet trade, but now they are employed.
