The Law of evidence has seen a Sharp change in Iran since the Islamic Revolution of 1979. The change was mainly made in the form of substituting customary evidence with sharri-ah approved evidence such as witnessing (Bayyenneh) and oath (Ghasam).
As to the oath, however, one can reject the idea that it can be taken as evidence in an action involving Legal entities. when an action is attributed to a person, he, himself, might be asked to take oath and so, it is considered as a personal evidence and cannot be delegated.
