  • Description

    AT A CEREMONY IN THE TEHERAN ROYAL PALACE, ATTENDED BY MEMBERS OF THE GOVERNMENT, THE SHAH OF PERSIA HANDED OVER A LARGE AREA OF THE ROYAL ESTATES TO PEASANT FARMERS, APR 9. THIS HAND OVER ALMOST COMPLETES THE PROGRAMME STARTED BY THE SHAH IN 1949 WHEN HE DECIDED TO DISTRIBUTE HIS HUGE HOLDINGS AMONG THE PEASANTS.

    IT WAS THE LAST OFFICIAL CEREMONY ATTENDED BY THE SHAH BEFORE HE LEFT FOR A STATE VISIT TO THE UNITED STATES WITH QUEEN FARAH.

    A TOTAL OF 522 FARMERS RECEIVED THE LITTLE DEEDS WHICH MAKES THEN OWNERS OF THE PAHLEVI DOMAINS THAT LIE NEAR THE SOVIET BORDER. A SMALL PORTION OF THE ROYAL ESTATES ARE STILL TO BE HANDED OVER TO THE PEOPLE BUT SOME DELAY HAS BEEN CAUSED OVER THE MAPPING OF THE AREAS. THE OWNERSHIP PAPERS HAVE ALREADY BEEN COMPLETED.

    RECENTLY THE SHAH INTRODUCED A BILL WHICH REFORMED THELLAND LAW BANNING THE OWNERSHIP OF LARGE AREAS BY FAMILIES OR COMPANIES.
