Instead, there will be another sanction — compulsory educational conversations.
Tehran Times reported that residents of Tehran will no longer be arrested for violating the traditional dress code, which involves wearing a hijab and long loose clothing. Instead of prison terms and fines for women, mandatory “educational conversations” are provided for in special courses. Nevertheless, in case of repeated offenses against residents of the capital of Iran, they can sue. At the same time, outside Tehran educational programs are not provided for, and women, as before, will be detained by law enforcers.
Last year, Tehran police announced plans to create a new unit of 7,000 people, including female officers. A large squad must monitor the implementation of the dress code, notes the Independent.
