Moral Police Impound Cars over “Bad Hijab”

Human Rights House of Iran – Officers from the Emergency Unit and the Moral Security Police cracked down on young Iranian men and women to enforce a government program that aims to fight “chastity offenders.” During the operation, at least 30 cars were impounded and their passengers were given receipts to reclaim their vehicles at the Emergency Unit later.

The joint operation was conducted on Golbarg Avenue in East Tehran and involved a large number of officers. The officers stopped any car that, in their view, was causing trouble for women or was carrying passengers who were improperly dressed.

The operation drew the attention of local residents who were then warned by officers to leave the scene of the roadblock.
