Mr. Rouhollah Shafiee

As directed in the letter of the Ministry of National Defence number 402/93/B dated 5 Azar 1358 [26 November 1979], the employment of all individuals who do not follow the officially recognized religions of the country and who [are members of] other religions must be terminated. Hence, as your perverted religion is Baha’i and not an officially recognized religion, your service was terminated at the Fishery of the Hormozgan Province effective 6 Esfand 1358 [25 February 1980]. You no longer have a position at the South Fishery and must present yourself to the Accounts Department to settle your account.
