Tehran, Iran, Oct. 20 – Iran’s Judiciary Chief Ayatollah Mahmoud Hashemi Shahroudi ordered a ban on prison leave for “enemies of the Islamic Republic”, including political prisoners and “trouble-makers”, a semi-official daily reported on Thursday.

Under the new order prisoners can no longer be granted temporary prison leave for various reasons, the hard-line daily Kayhan wrote.

Among those effected by the order are political opponents of the ruling theocracy, “trouble-makers and seditious elements in society”, and goods and drugs smugglers.

The daily quoted Mohammad-Reza Foulad-Amoli, the chief prosecutor in the northern province of Mazandaran, as saying, “This decree will be carried out in order to prevent new corruption in society”.
