Tehran, Iran, Nov. 30 – A new wave of crackdown was launched on “trouble-makers” in Tehran, state-run dailies reported a senior police commander in the Iranian capital as saying on Wednesday.

Colonel Hamid Andarzchamani said that as of Monday, a 10-day plan was being run by police in Greater Tehran’s various districts to combat “dirty elements in society”. The plan has been code-named “Zafar (Victory) 2”.

“As part of this plan, open symbols of corruption and crimes will be rounded up”, Andarzchamani said, adding that under the original “Plan to Combat Corruption”, or “Zafar”, more than 250 operations were carried out in 50 restive locations.

The first “Plan to Combat Trouble-makers” was launched in Tehran in September and soon spread to cities and towns across the nation. Under the scheme, thousands were arrested within a period of several months on various charges such as “racketeering” and “loansharking”.

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