Mr. Asadollah Ramezani Sabet, former day-worker employee of the Customs Office in Khorramshahr
In response to your letter dated 13 Mehr 1334 [6 October 1955] in which you requested reinstatement of your employment, you are hereby informed that previously, dated 2 Mehr 1334 [25 September 1955], in a one-page biography in your own handwriting, you have indicated directly and officially that you are an adherent of the Baha'i Faith.
Furthermore, in your letter of 13 Mehr 1334 [6 October 1955], you confirm that you had previously stated your religious affiliation. Considering the above, and so long as you are associated with the perverse Baha'i sect, your return to service is not possible, as per government instructions. This pertains unless you clearly declare your abhorrence and resentment in writing to this office.
Director General of the Customs Office -- Second Brigadier [Zargham]
