Prosecutor says Iran’s morality police has been shut down

Protesters in Iran called for a three-day strike this week, stepping up pressure on authorities after the public prosecutor said the morality police, whose detention of a young woman triggered months of protests, had been shut down.

Iran’s public prosecutor said Sunday that Tehran has shut down the country’s controversial morality police, although there was no immediate confirmation from the Interior Ministry that oversees the police unit.

Public Prosecutor Mohammad Jafar Montazeri made the announcement about abolishing the morality police, but the Iranian state media said he was not responsible for overseeing the force.
