Verdict of the Court

Mrs. Soraya Samimi, daughter of Ziaollah, has stated in her appeal that her salary was terminated owing to her being a Baha’i; however,  while she admits to having been born [into a] Baha’i [family], she has not stated anything [to indicate that she has recanted her faith]. The Tobacco Company’s response to letter number 43749 – 24 Mordad 1366 [15 August 1987] explains that because of her membership in the perverse Baha’i sect, the provisional reconstructing committees condemned her to indefinite dismissal with no remuneration.

This judgment is final, with no right of appeal in Court/Gh
