There is uncertainty over the status of Iran’s morality police.
In a BBC report, the morality police was set up to enforce Iran’s dress code.
However talks of it to be disbanded came up from a senior official.
When asked about the Guidance Patrol at a conference, Attorney General Mohammad Jafar Montazeri said they “have been shut down from where they were set up”.
However, the government did not confirm the move and local media reported that his remarks had been “misinterpreted”.
The death of a woman detained by the force has sparked nationwide protests.
