One of the agents of criminal Zionist elements was executed in Shiraz

According to the verdict of the Islamic Revolutionary Court of Shiraz, upheld by the Supreme Judiciary Council, one of the agents of the criminal Zionists and active member of perverse Baha’i sect by the name of Ziaollah Ahrari, 38 years old, son of Jalal, was convicted for spreading corruption on earth and waging war against God, and was sentenced to execution; the sentence against him was carried out. 

The afore-mentioned executed person was considered to be an active member of the perverse Baha’i sect, and according to his own explicit confession was a member of the administration  [assigned to] matters related to pioneering[1] and assistance since 1355 [1976-1977].  At the same time, while participating in the [Baha’i community’s] district consultative meetings, he requested a loan [to assist with the] establishment of a Baha’i Assembly.

He was very diligent in opposing the sacred principles of Islam and he did not assent to repent.
