Iranian police plan to use “smart cameras” in public places to identify and penalize women who violate the country’s strict Islamic dress code, known as the hijab law. Police will send warning messages and inform violators about the legal consequences of repeating the offense. The number of women in Iran defying the compulsory dress code has increased since protests erupted following the death of Kurdish-Iranian Mahsa Amini, who allegedly flouted the law. Iran’s police chief, Ahmad-Reza Radan, said that people who remove their hijab in public places will be warned first and presented to the courts as a next step. Car owners will also receive a warning text if any of their passengers violate the dress code, and their vehicles will be seized if the offense is repeated.
