Iran disbands morality police. He will not withdraw from the proceedings

“The morality police has nothing to do with the legal system,” said Attorney General Mohammad Jafar Montazeri, quoted by ISNA news agency.

However, it is unclear whether the force will be re-established in a different context or under a different name, notes AFP. State news agencies reported that death sentences and trials for offenses “against morality” would continue.

The words of the Iranian Attorney General were spoken on Saturday evening. Also yesterday, Montazeri said Iran’s parliament and judiciary were re-evaluating the country’s mandate for women to wear the hijab, a headscarf that covers the hair, ears and neck.

He did not specify what could change in the current law. He said the hijab review team met with the parliament’s culture committee on Wednesday, and “we’ll know the results in a week or two.”

Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi said on television Saturday that Iran’s state and Islamic principles are rooted in its constitution, but that “flexible” rules could be added to it.

France24 recalls that in July Raisi called for the mobilization of “all state institutions to enforce the headscarf order”.
