KCHTO Issues Permit For Construction of a Hotel Near the Apadana Palace in Susa

 

24 June 2007

 

 

 

LONDON, (CAIS) -- CAIS has learnt that Mohammad Sadeqi, the Director of Khuzestan Cultural and Heritage Organisation (KCHTO) has issued a permit yesterday June 23, for construction of a hotel over the Achaemenid dynastic site in the ancient city Susa, which is going to be called Amir Zargar.

 

The hotel will be constructed overlooking and only a few meters away from the Achaemenid palace of Apadana.

 

The source told CAIS, if the hotel is to be constructed a large number of the Iranian heritage will be destroyed as the result of excavation for foundation of the hotel, and it would also damage the integrity of the ancient sites of Susa.

 

The permit is considered to be illegal, since no one is permitted to construct over the registered national heritage sites in Iran.

 

The reliable source also informed CAIS that order for the issuing of the permit came from Esfandiar Rahim Masaei, the Islamic Republic vice president and director of the Iran Cultural Heritage and Tourism Organisation (ICHTO).

 

The reliable source wished to remain anonymous for his safety.
