Has there ever been a case of the UHJ forgiving a Covenant breaker

I received this email. Anyone volunteers to look it up? -Jonah
I was curious to know if there ever was a case of the UHJ forgiving a person that the Guardian had declared a Covenant breaker?
Or a case where the UHJ lifted sanctions on a believer that the Guardian had imposed.
This relates to a discussion that we were having during a Ruhi 8 study circle.
I have done some reading on this issue and found a case of the Guardian, in the early 1920's forgiving Sayyid Ali Afnan whom Abdul Baha had declared a Covenant breaker.
Also, I read the Writings on the Head of the Faith being the only one who can declare someone a Covenant breaker and also to forgive them.
What I'm interested in is if such a case exists where the UHJ has forgiven someone that the Guardian declared a Covenant breaker or sanctioned.
Could you possibly shed some more light on this.
Thank you in advance.
