More people join Tehran’s demonstrations despite warnings  

According to Mikrofonnews Agency (MHA), despite warnings from Iranian judicial officials, demonstrations resumed in Tehran on Tuesday as many markets closed down to protest against economic policies of President Rouhani.

Gold market in Tehran was closed down in the early hours of Tuesday followed by several other shopping centers in the capital and some other cities like Arak, Kermanshah, and Tabriz. Demonstrations were started on Sunday in protest of the devaluation of Iran’s Rial and increasing the price of imported goods in the Iranian markets.

Earlier, Sadeq Larijani, Head of Iran’s Judiciary warns that disrupting the economic system of Iran has a punishment of 20 years in jail or a death penalty.

Iranian officials say the demonstration is orchestrated from outside of Iran and the government will give a harsh punishment to the perpetrators of the unrests and chaos.
