WWII documents found in trunk of Shah's Rolls.


A briefcase containing documents from World War II has been found in the trunk of the late Shah's Rolls Royce.

The Shah's Rolls Royce has been parked in a locked garage for three decades. The car was being prepared for the first public exhibition of the Shah's vehicles on the occasion of Eid-e Fetr.

The director of the former Niavaran Palace complex, Ali-Reza Moghimi, said the truck was opened while the car was being readied for exhibit and the staff found the briefcase.

He said the briefcase was apparently placed in the trunk shortly before the Shah fled Iran at the time of the 1979 revolution.

Moghimi said the documents related to World War II but he did not describe the contents beyond saying they included a letter from the then-foreign minister to the Shah and some papers belonging to the minister.
