<<Is it the end for Iran's morality police? Activists sceptical of claims body is being disbanded
A three-day general strike is taking place in Iran this week. It's a show of defiance, as the anti-regime protest movement approaches its three-month mark with no sign of abating. On Monday, the strike was observed in dozens of Iranian cities, from the capital Tehran to Isfahan, Tabriz and the Kurdish regions. Facing its greatest existential challenge since the 1979 revolution, the Iranian regime has responded with a crackdown. Hundreds of people have been killed and thousands more arrested, including 11 sentenced to death.
There are now renewed questions over the status of Iran's morality police. Several days ago, the country's attorney general suggested that the group, which is responsible for policing women's attire, had been disbanded. This was seen by some as a concession to the pro-testers. But many Iran analysts remained sceptical, arguing that there was no evidence the mandatory hijab law was being relaxed. In fact, patrols are reported to have been stepped up in several cities. We take a closer look at the evolution of the morality police and we're joined by sociologist Azadeh Kian for more analysis.>>

<<Iran ex-president Mohammad Khatami voices support for protests
Former Iranian president Mohammad Khatami has voiced support for the protest movement sparked by Mahsa Amini's death, describing as <beautiful> its main slogan - <Woman, life, freedom>. Protests have swept Iran for nearly three months since Amini died after her arrest for an alleged breach of the country's hijab dress code for women based on Islamic sharia law. The authorities, who have struggled to contain the protests, describe them as <riots> fomented by Iran's arch foe the United States and its allies including Britain and Israel. Khatami, a reformist who served as Iran's president from 1997 to 2005 but has been effectively silenced by the establishment for years, has come out in support of the movement.
The 79-year-old described the slogan <Woman, life, freedom> - the main chant heard at the protests - as <a beautiful message that shows movement towards a better future>. <Freedom and security must not be placed against each other,> he said in a statement quoted by ISNA news agency Tuesday, on the eve of Students' Day.
<Freedom must not be trampled on in order to maintain security> and <security should not be ignored in the name of freedom,> he said. Khatami also spoke out against the arrest of students who have been at the forefront of the protests that erupted across Iran since Amini's death in custody on September 16. The imposition of restrictions <cannot ultimately ensure the stable security of universities and society>, he said. In his statement, Khatami also called on officials to <extend students a helping hand> and to recognise the <wrong aspects of governance> with their help before it is too late.>>

<<Iran's protest movement: 'The tipping point isn't far away'
As the protest movement in Iran continues to grow in intensity following fresh calls for another three-day strike, the prosecutor general made the surprise announcement on Saturday that the country's morality police, the group responsible for the death of Mahsa Amini which sparked the protests, had been abolished. The declaration was initially seen as a retreat by the regime but has done little to pacify dissent. As he answered questions following a speech in the city of Qom on December 3, few expected the surprise announcement from Iran's prosecutor general Mohammad Jafar Montazeri: he seemed to confirm that the morality police, created in 2006, had been abolished. Iran's morality police have been one of the targets for protestors, along with the country's Islamic Republic leadership, since officers arrested 22-year-old Mahsa Amini in September for failing to wear her headscarf properly. Amini later died in police custody, sparking nationwide and then international protests. As such, Montazeri's statement seemed to confirm a victory for protesters. <The morality police have nothing to do with judicial power and have been abolished by those who created them,> he said, according to Isna news agency, before adding: <Of course, judicial powers will continue to police morals in society.> But two days later, the future of Iran's morality police remains unclear. For histo-rian and Iran specialist Jonathan Piron, the government seems more inflexible than ever, contrary to the prosecutor general's announcement. <The morality police haven't been abolished in Iran,> he said. <The prosecutor general's words were ambiguous and were misinterpreted. The obligation for women to wear headscarves is not up for debate and authorities haven't made any concessions on this point. They are continuing policies of oppression.>>

<<Iran sentences five to death over killing of Basij officer during protests
Iranian authorities sentenced five people to death for allegedly killing an officer affiliated with Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard, state media said Tuesday. Eleven others received lengthy prison sentences. The 13 men and three minors had been charged with killing Ruhollah Ajamian, an official from the Basij, a paramilitary volunteer branch of Iran's elite Revolutionary Guard, according to the report from IRNA, Iran's state news agency. The five sentenced to death Monday were charged by Iran's Revolutionary Court, along with eight others. Three boys were charged by Iran's Criminal Court, ac-cording to the report. Iran's judiciary spokesman, Masoud Setayeshi, who is cited in the report, provided no evidence to support any of the accusations. The alleged killing took place In Karaj, near Tehran, on Nov. 12 when the 16 encircled and attacked Ajamian with knives and stones, the report said. IRNA did not disclose the identities of the 16. It said their sentences can be appealed. The sentencings come amid months of anti-government demonstrations that have been violently suppressed by Iran's security forces. The protests, now entering their third month, were sparked by the death in police custody of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini, who was detained for allegedly violating the Islamic Republic's strict dress code. They have since escalated into calls for the downfall of Iran's clerical rulers, posing one of the most serious challenges to Iran's theocracy since the 1979 revolution.>>
