EXCELLENCY:

News of the removal of the bodies of Baha'is from the Baha'i Cemetery of Teheran to unknown destinations has brought great grief and indignation to the Baha'is of Samoa.

We ask your Excellency's intervention to stop such deplorable action. It is truly humiliating that the resting places of our co-religionists are being so disgracefully desecrated.

We also ask your intervention to stop the construction of the Khavaran Cultural Centre on the site of the Baha'i cemetery of Teheran.
