The Respected Public Prosecutor,
15 Azar 1368 [6 December 1989]
Relying on God Almighty and beseeching His assistance, I would convey that I am Molouk Khadem, seventy-one  years old I imprisoned for six years because of being a Baha’i.
It is nine months since, by the Grace of God, I was released, and [I am being] faced with difficulties that I would like to inform you [about] and request your assistance; other than the Almighty God, I consider you a fair-minded person and He [God] has instructed us to stick to the right means:
- My retirement [pension], which [I] should be [able to] spend on myself and my old sick mother, after 40 years of serving in the Departments of Education and Finance, has been cut off.
- The meagre amount of money which I had kept aside from my salary at the Bank Melli for the days of need, and [which I] presently need for my eye surgery, has been transferred to the Treasury.
- I have been [prohibited] from doing any financial transaction and I could not even sell my vehicle, which the authorities graciously returned to me, to pay my bills.
- The objects that, three times, were taken from my house have not yet been returned to me.
- My mother and I are both deprived of even milk rations, assigned by the government for the elderly.
I hope that in considering the situation of two frail and sick women, and through your pure conscience and awareness of the Holy Writings, [you will] look into this situation and respond to us that we may continue our prayers and exercise patience, and not disturb you again.
