Vacating the Haziratul-Quds

Last week, all personnel of sections connected with former military commands and the State Security Agency left the Haziratul-Quds and completely evacuated the building. 

At the moment, there are two soldiers guarding the structure, and a gardener who has permission to visit the facility once or twice a day.

Until this moment, no steps have been taken to return the Haziratul-Quds building to the Baha’i administration; it is most likely to be returned to them soon, even though Baha’is may be prevented from practicing their religious rites in it for a while. In any case, the government will return this building [to them].
