Tehran, Iran, Oct. 31 – Police in the north-eastern town of Bojnourd have launched a new crackdown on alluring mannequins in clothes stores and the main bazaar, the town’s prosecutor-general told the state-run news agency, IRNA on Monday.

Moussa-al-Reza Pirgazi announced that thus far 262 clothes stores had been inspected and 65 feminine mannequins had been rounded up.

He said that in accordance with the country’s Islamic trade laws, stores found to be violating the dress code on mannequins would be shut down for a period of 10 to 90 days.

“The use of vulgar mannequin – whether male or female – is an affront to public moral and is considered to be a crime”, Pirgazi said, adding that the display of properly veiled mannequins which adhere to the national dress code would not be considered a crime.

The prosecutor-general also said that a crackdown had been underway to arrest “trouble-makers” in society.

“32 cultural stores in this town have been inspected and a number of vulgar CDs have been rounded up from those stores”, he said.

The plan to crackdown on trouble-makers has been in effect in Bojnourd since October 18 on the orders of the town’s prosecutor-general.

Iranian officials often refer to millions of unemployed young men, who are largely beset by frustration and despair, as “trouble-makers”.
