A we emphasize the Imam has so far preferred silence regarding this question and has delegated a decision on the hostage problem to the islamic consultative Council parliament Quot the Council will not be fully elected until next month. At about the same time. Tehran radio broadcast a further clarification of the situation from president Abolhassan Bani Sadr who also is head of the revolutionary Council and is known to be keen to resolve the hostage crisis. The radio quoted Bani Sadr As saying the militants first proposed to an unidentified member of the Council and to Khomeini a son Ahmad that they hand Over the hostages and the embassy to the Council. A when i met with the Imam his son praised the proposal with me and i agreed. Then i raised it with the Council and it was endorsed Quot Bani Sadr said. Even if the authorities do assume control of the americans an Early release appeared unlikely. In their radio statement the militants said the hostages will be Given Quot full medical checking and films Are to be taken of them Quot before they Are turned Over to Council representatives. Shortly after the Transfer the hostages would be seen by the . Commission in Tehran investigating Iran s charges against deposed Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi Ghotb Zadeh said Friday. The .
