Question
Hi Saeed,

Greetings to you and yours from sunny Izmir!

From http://fa.wikipedia.org/wiki/ایران
این نظام حکومتی که در قانون اساسی مصوّب ۱۳۵۸ (و بازنگری ۱۳۶۸) تشریح شده‌است
In مصوّب ۱۳۵۸ and بازنگری ۱۳۶۸, I understand that there a kasre after the first word in each case. Is the best translation for this kasre "in" in both cases? So:
قانون اساسی مصوّب ۱۳۵۸ = the constitution enacted in 1353 (Shamsi) and
بازنگری ۱۳۶۸ = the review in 1348 (Shamsi)

Best wishes, and many thanks,

Simon

Answer
Hi Dera Simon,
Yes, it is correct.
مصوّبِ ۱۳۵۸ = مصوب در 1358
بازنگری ۱۳۶۸ = بازنگری شده در 1368
تصویب = enact
مصوب شده - تصویب شده = enacted
تصویب شده در = enacted in
در = in
