This is to certify that Zohreh Tourian was a student in the fourth level at this educational institute from 15 Mehr 1362 [7 October 1983] to 24 Azar 1362[15 December 1983]. However, on 21 Azar 1362 [12 December 1983], the student and her parent admitted to being Baha’is, and in accordance with the orders of the Department, we therefore could not accept the student in this unit and requested the parents to take her file and arrange to enrol her in another primary school.
