On Sunday, April 16, the police announced the closure of more than 150 commercial establishments by the authorities within 24 hours for not respecting the obligation of employees to wear headscarves.
These closure orders were issued the day after the entry into force of a new plan by the police, using surveillance cameras and facial recognition in particular, to control the wearing of headscarves by women, which has been mandatory since the 1979 Islamic Revolution.
