<<'We continue our revolution': Iran protesters dismiss claims that morality police were 'disbanded'
Iranian anti-regime protests that erupted in September after the death of Mahsa Amini in the custody of the <morality police> have continued despite widely reported remarks by an official suggesting that the controversial security unit has been disbanded. Our Observers in Iran say that the current unrest goes far beyond the morality police and strict Islamic dress code laws, underlining the fact that no rules have changed. Iran's Attorney General Mohammad Jafar Montazeri was quoted saying that Iran's morality police <have been disbanded by the same authorities who installed them>, at a religious conference on December 3, local media reported. But many argue that his remarks were taken out of context or overblown.
Indeed, Montazeri added that the Iranian judiciary would continue to <monitor behavioural actions at the community level>. There was no confirmation regarding the morality police from Iran's interior ministry, which has overseen the morality police since the force was created in 2006.>>

<<Why protesters in Iran are risking everything for change - video explainer
People across Iran have been protesting for nearly three months, defying a deadly crackdown by regime forces. The demonstrations are seen as a fierce challenge to four decades of hardline clerical rule. The protesters' cry of 'Woman, Life, Freedom' has galvanised the mo-vement, which has travelled around the world, but within Iran there have been more than 18,000 arrests, violence and a rising death toll. With protesters refusing to back down, we look at what they want and why they are willing to risk everything to get it Iranian man, 27, shot dead for celebrating team's World Cup exit.

<<Iranian shops close in several cities after protesters' call for nationwide strike
Iranian shops shut their doors in several cities on Monday, following calls for a three-day nationwide strike from protesters seeking the fall of clerical rulers, while the head of the judiciary blamed what he called <rioters> for threatening shopkeepers. Iran has been rocked by nationwide unrest following the death of Iranian Kurdish woman Mahsa Amini on September 16 in police custody, posing one of the strongest challenges to the Islamic Republic since the 1979 revo-lution. Amini was arrested by Iran's morality police for flouting the strict hijab policy, which requires women to dress modestly and wear headscarfs. Women have played a prominent role in the protests, many of them waving or burning their headscarfs. The semi-official Tasnim news agency reported on Monday that an amusement park at a Tehran shopping centre was closed by the judiciary because its operators were not wearing the hijab properly. The reformist-leaning Hammihan newspaper said that morality police had increased their presence in cities outside Tehran, where the force has been less active over recent weeks. Iran's public prosecutor on Saturday was cited by the semi-official Iranian Labour News Agency as saying that the morality police had been disbanded. But there was no confir-mation from the Interior Ministry and state media said the public prosecutor was not responsible for overseeing the force.>>

<<Iranian press sceptical about claim morality police has been abolished
Iran's conservative press on Monday ignored reports that the Islamic republic has scrapped its morality police after weeks of protests, a story that ran on the front pages of only four reformist dailies.
Even some of the reformist newspapers raised questions about the news.
In an apparent gesture to the protesters, Prosecutor General Mohammad Jafar Montazeri said the <morality police have nothing to do with the judiciary and have been abolished by those who created them,> in comments carried by the ISNA news agency Sunday.
Another reformist publication, Arman Melli, questioned whether this really was <the end of the morality police?> A fourth newspaper, Ham Mihan, emphasised: <The judicial authority made a declaration but no other authority has announced the dissolution of the morality police.> >>

<<Iran's morality police dissolved, says prosecutor general
Iran has scrapped its morality police after more than two months of protests triggered by the arrest of Mahsa Amini for allegedly vio-lating the country's strict female dress code, local media said Sunday. Women-led protests, labelled <riots> by the authorities, have swept Iran since the 22-year-old Iranian of Kurdish origin died on September 16, three days after her arrest by the morality police in Tehran. <Morality police have nothing to do with the judiciary> and have been abolished, Attorney General Mohammad Jafar Montazeri was quoted as saying by the ISNA news agency. His comment came at a religious conference where he responded to a participant who asked <why the morality police were being shut down>, the report said. The morality police -- known formally as the Gasht-e Ershad or <Guidance Patrol> -- were established under hardline president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, to <spread the culture of modesty and hijab>, the mandatory female head covering. The units began patrols in 2006. The announcement of their abolition came a day after Montazeri said that <both parliament and the judiciary are working (on the issue)> of whether the law requiring women to cover their heads needs to be changed. President Ebrahim Raisi said in televised comments Saturday that Iran's republican and Islamic foundations were constitutionally entrenched <but there are methods of imple-menting the constitution that can be flexible>.
<Iran suspends morality police> because it had already become irrelevant. When people chant across the country, <the Islamic Republic should go,> such moves seem desperate. The regime is incapable of addressing the real grievances. #MahsaAmini #مهسا_امینی #IranRevoIution #Iran>.

<<Protest-hit Iran says reviewing mandatory headscarf law
Tehran (AFP) Iran said Saturday it is reviewing a decades-old law that requires women to cover their heads, as it struggles to quell more than two months of protests linked to the dress code.
Protests have swept Iran since the September 16 death in custody of Mahsa Amini, a 22-year-old Iranian of Kurdish origin arrested by the morality police for allegedly flouting the sharia-based law.
Demonstrators have burned their head coverings and shouted anti-government slogans. Since Amini's death, a growing number of wo-men have not been observing hijab, particularly in Tehran's fas-hionable north. <Both parliament and the judiciary are working (on the issue)> of whether the law needs any changes, Iran's attorney general Mohammad Jafar Montazeri said. Quoted by the ISNA news agency, he did not specify what could be modified in the law by the two bodies, which are largely in the hands of conservatives. The review team met on Wednesday with parliament's cultural commis-sion <and will see the results in a week or two>, the attorney general said. President Ebrahim Raisi on Saturday said Iran's re-publican and Islamic foundations were constitutionally entrenched.
<But there are methods of implementing the constitution that can be flexible,> he said in televised comments.>>

<<Iran state body says 200 dead in <riots> as Raisi hails 'freedoms'
President Ebrahim Raisi on Saturday hailed Iran's Islamic Republic as a guarantor of rights and freedoms, defending the ruling system amid a crackdown on anti-government protests that the United Nations says has cost more than 300 lives. A top state security body meanwhile said that 200 people, including members of the security forces, had lost their lives in the unrest, a figure significantly lower than that given by the world body and rights groups.
The demonstrations have turned into a popular revolt by furious Iranians from all layers of society, posing one of the boldest challenges to the clerical leadership since the 1979 revolution. Unfazed by the brutal crackdown, protesters have raised slogans against Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, and repeatedly demanded an end to the Islamic government.>>
