The Office of the Prime Minister
[With no number, date: Tir 1323 (Jun/July 1944)]
A confidential and private note must be sent, addressed to all the ministers of all ministries, stating that: “Recently, it was heard that government officials in various cities are participating in religious and political [propaganda] activities with political aims. As these actions are against Article 8 of the Employment Regulation Act and are strictly forbidden, it is necessary for strict orders to be issued to prohibit government employees from participating in such meetings and partisan gatherings. Should they violate this Act, they will be dismissed or suspended from service”.
