Iran: Police Crack Down on Winter Clothing

Reuters reports that Tehran’s police will once again monitor women in the city to ensure that their outfits are in line with “Islamic codes”, according to Tehran’s chief of police, Ahmad Reza Radan. Until recently, dress codes were only enforced during the summer, when the weather became warm, but now police aim to clamp down on offenders who wear “tight trousers tucked inside long boots” or “a hat or cap instead of [head]scarves”.Offenders may be warned, or taken into a police station and fined.
