Court Verdict

With respect to the application of Mr. Bashir Dana against the Ministry of Science, Research and Technology, and Payame Noor University, concerning [his] passing the National Entrance Examination of 1385 [2006/2007] and continuing [his] education, this court has considered the content of the file and the statement of the respondent and reviewed the situation of the above-named person in light of current law issued by the Supreme Council of Cultural Revolution, based on which he was refused entry, and finds that the plaintiff’s case has no legal merit and does not constitute deviation from the policies. As such, there is no evidence of any offence having been committed to merit a favourable ruling for the plaintiff. The plaintiff has therefore failed to establish his claim and his complaint is thus dismissed. This decision, in accordance with Article 7 of the Tribunals Act, is final.
