Iran's attorney-general says mandatory headscarf law is under review​


ran's parliament and judiciary are reviewing a decades-old law that requires women to cover their heads, as the country struggles to quell more than two months of protests linked to the dress code.

"Both parliament and the judiciary are working [on the issue]" of whether the law needs any changes, Iran's Attorney-General Mohammad Jafar Montazeri said.

Quoted by the ISNA news agency, he did not specify what could be modified in the law by the two bodies, which are largely in the hands of conservatives.

The review team met on Wednesday with parliament's cultural commission "and will see the results in a week or two", the attorney-general said.

President Ebrahim Raisi on Saturday said Iran's republican and Islamic foundations were constitutionally entrenched.

"But there are methods of implementing the constitution that can be flexible," he said in televised comments.
