The defendant, in response to the plaintiff’s complaint, has presented a letter of defence, recorded at the office of this branch under number 2908, dated 1 Mehr 1394 [23 September 2015], and has stated the following: “The aforementioned individual is subject to regulation number 1327/M/Sh, dated 6 Esfand 1369 [25 February 1991], passed by the Supreme Council for Cultural Revolution, and is not eligible to go to university.”

Having held a special meeting and after reviewing the reasons and documents provided by each party, we announce the completion of the investigation and, beseeching the help of God, we render our decision as follows:
