Faridoon Felfeli — who has homes in Long Island, N.Y., and London — says in his lawsuit that he did not sign the deed, that his name was forged and that he does not know “M. Sepahsalary," the person to whom the land was transferred. The land is for sale for be tween $5 million and $10 mil lion. However, no one has paid taxes on the land since 1976 and local tax collectors are planning to sue the owner of the contested land. In December 1979, someone paid the Harris County District Clerk $7 to record an allegedly phony deed transferring the ownership of the undeveloped property from Felfeli to Sepahsalary. Felfeli says in the suit he was “interned” in Iran in late 1979 after the U.S. Embassy was taken over by Iranian n and Americans wereb hostage. "It would thereforesi the only plausible for the existence of ibtiii deed is that some person,ij ing Mr. Felfeli's pm and knowing that neo leave Iran, forged andtt the deed inanattempti cate his property," tUbj says.
