Javad Heyat’s assistant; “The testament in the Iranian Embassy in Azerbaijan is old” – UPDATED

Baku: “Javad Heyat testament in the Iranian Embassy in Azerbaijan is old. Dr. Heyat submitted this testament to the Embassy 3 years ago.”

Late Professor Javad Heyat’s family-friend and assistant Zulfi Bakshali said it to APA.

He said that the Embassy’s statement reflects the truth: “Javad Heyat had a testament about his wish to be buried in Tehran, but it is old. As I know, three places were mentioned in it, but later his testament was changed.

It is likely that the Embassy based on the old testament. I don’t want to talk about it, as I do not have sufficient information. The deceased’s brother Mahammadrza Heyat will make a statement on the matter.”
