The reception and care of the family of Iraj Iskanderi could be entrusted to the USSR SOKK i KP Executive Committee. Until resolution of the issue of his work and residence the USSR SOKK i KP Executive Committee has the ability to temporarily house Iraj Iskanderi and his family in the Senezh suburban Moscow rest home.


Suggestions about the work and material support of Iraj Iskanderi and granting him an apartment will be submitted separately.
