Procedural Synopsis:


Further to the appeal made by the aforementioned against the decision issued by the Provisional Board with respect to the charges of membership in the perverse Baha’i sect, the file was submitted to this Branch for review. In her statement of appeal, she wrote that she was hired in 50/51 [1971/72] and has been on-call since 11/12/59 [2 March 1981], and to date she has neither received payment for the period of being on-call, nor has been given any updates as to the status of her employment. Furthermore, in her statement, she has requested a fair judgment in her case.


The Appeal Board, subsequent to reviewing the file records, in particular the report of her involvement with the perverse Baha’i sect (page 1), failure to reject this allegation in the preliminary defence (page 24), and her statement of appeal, invited her to participate in a hearing on 29/4/87 [19 July 2008] and provide further explanation. She came to the hearing, and while maintaining her position as to her continued involvement with the above-mentioned sect, requested an appeal. The Board, in light of the noted documents, confirmed her offence and, pursuant to Article 21 of the Executive Guidelines and considering the evidence of harmful public repercussions of the offence, issued the above verdict.  In accordance with Article 4 of the Law this order is binding from the date of issuance.
