Adolfath Mahvi file
TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:
By the Command of His Imperial Majesty, Shahanshah Aryamehr, the Supreme Commander, I am authorized to state that, due to the interference of Mr. Abolfath Mahvi in the procurement of defense systems and requirements for the Imperial Armed Forces from United States industries, his name should be put on the black list. I have been ordered to make all necessary arrangements to terminate his activities. He has no right and/or authority whatsoever to interfere, under any name or cover, with the defense procurement for the Imperial Iranian Armed Forces.
I would like United States companies and industries to be notified that the Ministry of War of the Imperial Government of Iran will not sign any contract if Mr. Abolfath Mahvi, under any name or arrangement whatsoever, is connected with such a contract.

SUBJ: Status of Mr Abolfath Mahvi (U)
1. (C) General Toufanian, Vice Minister of War, called General Brett today, 6, July, and informed him that the Shah had placed Mr. Abolfath Mahvi on the black list. General Toufanian requested in the strongest terms that Gen Brett inform DOD of the Shah's decision.
2. (C) Based on past experience, this clearly means that Mr. Mahvi will not be acceptable as a representative and/or consultant of any foreign firms. We have no information at this end as to what US firms Mr Mahvi represents in any capacity, however, indications are he has in the past represented certain US commercial firms.
3. (C) Suggest this be given appropriate distribution. It is apparent from conversations with representatives of US contractors here that a most serious drive is on by the Shah and the COI against the use of agents and/or individuals whose capacity can in any way be so construed. We see no letup in this effort, but [Remaining information missing]
