The twin legislative houses will ratify the bill for punishment of Baha’is and seizure of their properties before their hiatus.

Information received from an informed source indicates that the National Consultative Assembly and the Senate will ratify the bill tabled by the government and the members of parliament for the punishment of the Baha’is and propagandists of this sect, and for confiscation of their properties, before its summer hiatus. This decision was made by the high-ranking authorities a few days ago and will be enforced with strict measures.
