Iran to Disband Morality Police Over Mahsa Amini’s Death

Iran’s attorney general, Mohammad Jafar Montazeri, has said that the country’s morality police, tasked with upholding the nation’s Islamic clothing code, have been dismissed.

Montazeri made this statement at a gathering on Sunday, but it has not yet been verified by other agencies.

He also informed the Iranian parliament on Saturday that the law requiring women to wear hijabs would be reviewed.

The death of a young woman, Mahsa Amini, in jail has sparked months of protests in Iran.

The morality police placed Amini under arrest for allegedly flouting their rigorous regulations about head coverings.

Three days after being detained by the morality police in Tehran, 22-year-old Amini passed away while in detention on September 16.
