I was away for six weeks in South America and I forgot to tell my landlord I was going to be away. However I had paid my rent for those weeks. When I got back I found that my landlord had thought I had abandoned the apartment and the things that were left there. He had come in and was sorting through my stuff. Is he allowed to do this?

     No. Before your landlord decides that you have abandoned the premises, he should consider all the circumstances very carefully. If you had paid your rent for those weeks, then that was a strong indication that you had not abandoned the property, and he is not entitled to be selling your possessions. The same would be true if you had been detained in jail or in hospital.
