Iranian refugee takes oath as Filipino
Inquirer (Manila)
September 18, 2006

ANGELES CITY-- Standing next to a Philippine flag and suppressing his tears, Iranian refugee Buick Farahmand Bahador took his oath as a Filipino Monday, ending a 27-year wait for a new homeland since he fled the turmoil that accompanied the fall of Mohammad Reza Shah Pahlavi in 1979. "I feel great," said Bahador, 55, as he stepped out of the packed court room of Judge Philbert Iturralde wearing a light blue Barong Tagalog.
