Explanation of Mr. Rouhollah Mottahedeh

The Honourable Ajang Newspaper

According to the journalistic ethical laws, it is necessary to publish the following explanations in the first issue to clarify the misunderstanding.

I, Rouhollah Mottahedeh, am a Baha’i, and I was born in a Baha’i family.  I have never been Jewish and I do not interfere in any process. Whatever property that I own in any area, according to the records and property ownership documents, I have bought from certain individuals in exchange for a cash payment.

 

Respectfully,

Rouhollah Mottahedeh
