A glance at the Commission for the Purging and Purification of Governmental Organizations and Agencies

How does the Commission for the Purging and Purification Commission Work?

The Plan of the Cleansing Commission…

On behalf of the Revolutionary Council, a plan has been devised for the Cleansing Commission, and the reports are given to the prosecutor through the Cleansing Commission Panel.  Many of the problems of the provinces have been resolved through the Cleansing Commission; for example, the Sho’leh Khavar Company was composed of a group of Baha’is with Siavash and (Eskandar Arjomand) at the top, who are now fugitives.

When the Cleansing Commission was established in this company, it was observed that the money that got deposited to Siavash Arjomand and Eskandar Arjomand, was then sent to another country.  Siavash Arjomand had even said, “If you are not able to send the money through the bank, send it in dollars instead.” Unfortunately, those who are in charge have not done much in this field.
