Dear Mr. Naim Ghaedsharafi,

Internal Management of Apadana Hotel Persepolis,

With greetings,

Due to the prevailing political situation in Iran, as well as the repeated requests of the Intelligence Office, Security Office, and Cultural Heritage and Tourism Organization regarding your activity and presence in the hotel, due to your Baha’i beliefs, we would like to inform you that considering the  above, it is not possible to continue our collaboration with you.

Therefore, act as soon as possible to hand over your assigned responsibilities.


Success is bestowed by God

The Management of the Hotel
