First report from December 5, 3:38 p.m.:

Tehran – Amid the ongoing protests in Iran, the authorities have announced that sentences already imposed on demonstrators will soon be implemented.

Justice chief Gholam-Hussein Mohseni-Edschehi said according to a report by the news portal

Etemad

on Monday (December 5) that several judgments had already been confirmed by the Supreme Court and would also be "executed soon".

In addition to imprisonment, this also included decisions in which demonstrators were sentenced for "Moharebeh".

In Iran, "Moharabeh" - war against God - is punishable by death.

According to human rights organizations, at least 18,000 people have been arrested since mid-September during the mass protests in the Islamic country.

It is unclear how many charges have already been filed.

The authorities usually accuse them of taking part in illegal demonstrations, causing unrest or endangering national security.

In November, demonstrators were sentenced to death for the first time.

Iran is one of the countries that also enforces the death penalty.

Federal Foreign Office on Iran: Abolishing the vice squad is not enough

The Iranian Attorney General Mohammed Jafar Montazeri announced on Saturday evening (November 3) that the vice squad would be disbanded.

"The vice squad has nothing to do with the judiciary and was abolished by those who created it," the Isna news agency quoted him as saying in response to a question at a conference.

According to the German government, the abolition of the moral police in Iran will not change anything in the demands of the Iranian people.

A spokeswoman for the Federal Foreign Office (AA) in Berlin said that the protesters in Iran who have been protesting for months are not just about the dissolution of the moral police or the abolition of the headscarf requirement.

People wanted to live "free and self-determined".

It remains to be seen how this announcement will play out.

An official confirmation for such a step is not yet known to her.

Protests in Iran: Videos of closed shops are circulating on the Internet

Many shops have now remained closed in several cities across the country.

This was reported by activists from Iran.

Videos were shared on social media that are said to show closed shops in major cities such as Isfahan, Shiraz, Sanandaj, Ilam and Urmia.

The images could not be independently verified.

Last week activists called for new nationwide protests and strikes.

The protests are expected to continue until Wednesday.

Journalist Sima Sabet shared a video of a number of closed shops via Twitter.

The images are said to come from Shiraz in southern Iran.

Shops also remained closed in the capital, Tehran.

However, it was unclear whether this was a gesture of support for the protests or out of fear of possible clashes between protesters and security forces.

Some shopkeepers in Tehran's bazaar are said to have received threats that they would face heavy fines if they closed.
