Tehran's moral squads fight it hard against 'depraved' parties

Tehran, Jan 4, IRNA -- Iran's moral squads have dismantled 32 'centesr of corruption' in the past nine months in mostly plush districts of northern Tehran and arrested 138 people, the Islamic Revolution's Guards Corps said in a report on Saturday.

The arrests were made on the orders of the Office to Enjoin Good and Inhibit Evil, in which moral squads rounded up nine mixed parties, which are banned under the Islamic Sharia, and detained 150 merry-makers, it added.

In the period under review, 28 runaway girls were arrested and returned to their families, the report said.

Iranian press regularly report on moral police busting mixed parties in which young girls and boys mingle. Alcohol consumption, banned in the Islamic Republic since 1979, is not rarity in such parties.
