[In the name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful]

 

As we, the undersigned,  feel responsible to God and to the Prophet, His Holiness Mohammad [may peace be upon Him]; and as we believe in the Judgment Day—as any faithful Muslim would feel himself responsible towards the Almighty; since we were informed that two of our co-workers who are employees of Pepsi Cola have untruthfully testified against Mr. Yousef Sobhani and accused him of murder and abuse of Muslims, we hereby swear to the Almighty God on the Holy Quran and testify that the testimony of those witnesses was tainted by prejudice, and that Mr. Sobhani is an innocent individual who has always protected the workers and never discriminated between Muslims and non-Muslims.  Since we were witness to all events, he never committed a murder.
