Tehran prosecutor office files criminal case against Etemad newspaper for publishing confidential document

The Tehran Prosecutor's Office has initiated legal action against Etemad newspaper for the alleged unauthorized disclosure of a profoundly confidential document.

According to the prosecution’s declaration, Etemad newspaper, in an article released on 26 November 2023 unlawfully published the contents of a document deemed extremely sensitive.
In line with the press law governing such matters, the publication of this article prompted the filing of a criminal case against the newspaper.

The document seemed to be about a directive issued by the Ministry of Interior about the must-to-follow guidelines set out for those tasked with maintaining the hijab law in the country.

Etemad newspaper has yet to provide a statement or response regarding the filed case.
