HRA News Agency – In the city of Birjand Mr. Siavash Deimi lost his business permit on Monday 26 April when the government agents closed his appliance repair shop.
Mr. Deimi had run his business for several years but this year the authorities did not renew his permit for several months. He made several trips to the government offices to renew his permit with no success. The government agents openly identified his belief in the Baha’i faith as the reason for their inaction.
