We received your request for consideration to be given to your file.  The information in your file states that the reason for your suspension from continuing your studies was the result of allegations of your affiliation with the perverse sect. In order to continue your studies, you must provide proof of your renunciation of the said sect by submitting to this committee (photocopies of) your sincere recantation, as published three times in national newspapers that have wide circulations, so we may reconsider the matter and make a decision.  In the event of failure to provide the aforementioned documentation, you will be dealt with in accordance with the [regulations].\
