Case Procedure:

With the complaint of [Mr.] Mashareliah to the decision of the initial Board, which was issued regarding membership in the subversive sect of Baha’ism, his file was submitted to this branch to be considered for appeal.  In his appeal, he has written: that his hiring was in the year 50 and 51 [1971 and 1972], and starting from 11/12/59 [3/2/1981], he became available for work, but up until now he has received neither his salary as an eligible employee nor is his status clear.  In continuation of his appeals letter, he requests a fair review of his case.

            The Appeals Board, after reviewing the case files, including the report on his affiliation with the subversive sect of Baha’ism (pg. 1) and an absence of objection to the accusation against him in the initial defense (pg. 24), and the content of the appeal, invited Mashareliha to participate in the Appeals Board meeting held on 29/4/87 [7/29/1999] and present the necessary explanations.  He appeared at the indicated meeting, and requested a new review of the file while expressing remaining affiliation with the indicated sect.  In consideration of the indicated evidence, the Board upheld his violation, and in accordance with article 21 of the executive bylaw of the Law and the destructive effects of this violation for society, cast the decision as described above.  The issued decision must be implemented starting from the date of the verdict in accordance with article 4 of the Law.
