Iran Parliament forwards bill on Press Law to Expediency Council

The Majlis on Sunday refused to rewrite certain amendments it had devised to the Press Law, as demanded by the Guardian Council (GC), and forwarded the bill to the Expediency Council (EC) for arbitration, IRNA reported from Tehran on Monday quoting the press.

The English-language newspaper `Tehran Times' in its Majlis Update column quoted MP Ali-Asghar She'rdoust as saying that the GC had called for removal of an article of the bill that would allow publishers to distribute their print media outside the geographical boundaries in which they are licensed to work.

However, She'rdoust, who is the rapporteur of the Majlis Cultural Commission, said that the commission had studied the GC request but decided to insist on the amendment.

"Therefore, the bill was forwarded to the EC for arbitration," he added.
