File Proceedings:  On 6 Esfand 1368 [25 February 1990] the Plaintiff presented the above request to the Court of Administrative Justice.

In the presence of the Judge and the Consultant, the appeal was heard at Branch 4 on 19 Khordad 1369 [9 June 1990], and having considered the case documents and the assessment of the Branch Consultant, the case was concluded, and the verdict is as follows.

Court’s Verdict

With regard to the appeal of Mr. Hayat Afshar, son of Faraj, retiree of the Ministry of Petroleum, for reinstatement of his pension, in view of the advice of the Primary Board of Employment Arbitration of the Employees of the Ministry of Petroleum, letter number 875-[date] 9 khordad 1369 [30 May 1990], the Plaintiff was found to be guilty of membership in the perverse Baha’i sect under Order HB/1092/8, [date] 15 Tir 1361 [6 July 1982],  and on 25 Esfand 1365 [16 March 1987], was permanently dismissed by the Islamic Consultative Assembly’s Primary Board of Employment Arbitration. That Order is final, given that [a timely] appeal has not been filed.  In accordance with Paragraph 2 of Section 38 of the Employment Arbitration Act, there is no right of appeal for individuals who have been permanently sentenced [to dismissal from their employment] as the result of judgements issued by the Primary Committee for the Restructuring of Human Resources and who did not appeal by 2 Mehr 1365 [24 September 1986]. As the appeal was made on 6 Esfand 1368 [25 February 1990], [which is] outside of the prescribed timeframe, as stipulated in the paragraph [identified] above, appeals regarding decisions of the Primary Committee for the Restructuring of Human Resources that have been made after 2 Mehr 1365 [24 September 1986] will not be considered. Hence the appeal is refused, and the decision is final.
