The leadership of Iran’s justice system has instructed police to “severely punish” women who violate the country’s headscarf-wearing laws, Mehr news agency reported on Tuesday.

Referring to the functioning of the justice system, “Courts should impose additional penalties such as deportation, bans of certain professions and closure of workplaces.”

Iran fell into the grip of a widespread protest movement after 22-year-old Mahsa Amini died in custody on September 16. She was accused of violating the dress code.

Since the protests, the good police, whose job it is to meet hijab requirements, have become less visible and women have taken to the streets without the mandatory hijab.

However, while the authorities made it clear that with the new year there would be no more tolerance, the police warned that women should also wear headscarves in cars.

Many cafes and restaurants serving uncovered women have been closed in recent weeks.
