Given that usage of such properties without legal authority is considered a criminal offence, it is ordered that the venues in possession of the Baha’is in the name of the Assembly be vacated within one week, and the furniture delivered to [illegible], and the receipt forwarded to us.  Any delay or breach in the enforcement of this order will have serious consequences.
