Faezeh Hashemi’s Meeting With Members of Baha’ism is a Manifestation of Culpability / The Judiciary Should Confront This Seriously

A member of the Supreme Board of Conflict Resolution and Adjustment of the Three Branches of Government, referring to Faezeh Hashemi Rafsanjani’s meeting with members of the perverse Baha’i sect, stressed that this act is an example of culpability.

Abbas-Ali Kadkhodaie, a member of the Supreme Board of Conflict Resolution and Adjustment of the Three Branches of Government, said in an interview with Tasnim Pooya, a political correspondent of the Journalists’ Club, about Faezeh Hashemi’s meeting with the leaders of the perverse Baha’i sect, “The meeting was an example of a manifestation of culpability and a spokesman for the Judiciary also announced that the matter would be prosecuted.”

The principal adviser to the head of the Guardian Council in political and legal affairs, emphasizing that the revolutionary people of Iran want to address this issue, added, “In judicial laws, communicating, encouraging and persuading prohibited groups is considered a crime; therefore, any move in the direction of these groups is considered a criminal act that the country’s Judiciary should confront seriously.
