Decision of the Security Commission about the Baha’is

Bandar Pahlavi[1] – A meeting of the Security Commission of Bandar Pahlavi, following the recent decisions taken in the centre [Capital.] about the Baha’is, was held in the Governorate Office in the presence of all military commanders and civil directors.  Following recent incidents and the disgraceful defeat of the Baha’is, harsh measures were taken about the Baha’is of Bandar Pahlavi.  Because the responsible authorities have not yet provided reliable information to reporters and newspaper editors, from what [appears to be the outcome of their actions], the Baha’is of Bandar Pahlavi have been carefully controlled by law enforcement officers and they have carefully taken the necessary steps to prevent any further such incidents.
