The workers stated," The apartments were going to be assigned since 2011 but this has not been done by so far. The responsible company has called the workers in the past days demanding more money for delivering the apartments."

According to the workers, the apartments were supposed to be delivered to an amount of 14 million Tomans ($4263) . The contractors have not delivered the apartments and they have requested more money.
