Letter of instruction regarding verdict issued by the Islamic Revolutionary Court to the incarcerated person

Inmate Mr. Shoaollah Sharif, son of Ali-Asghar, identification number [redacted], arrested on 18 Shahrivar 1363 [9 September 1984] for being a member of the perverse Baha’i sect and advocating in their favor, was sentenced by the Central Islamic Revolutionary Court on 12 Esfand 1363 [3 March 1985] to 15 years’ imprisonment. 

Taking into consideration the [time served during his] temporary detention, his release date is 18 Shahrivar 1378 [9 September 1999].  It is appropriate that prison officers inform the Department of Verdict Enforcement five days prior to the end of his sentence so necessary action can be taken to release the prisoner.  It is also necessary to give to the Archives office a copy of the above verdict, viewed and signed by the offender with his fingerprint [affixed to the document as proof], for records purposes.
