Iran’s nuke-deal protesters continue gathering outside parliament despite police warning
Baku, Azerbaijan, Oct. 3
By Umid Niayesh - Trend:
Tens of Iranians continue their sit-in in front of the parliament for the fifth day, protesting the nuclear deal, despite the police warning.
The protestors urged the parliament to reject the nuclear deal achieved between Tehran and the six world powers last July.
Iran's police chief Brigadier General Hossein Ashtari has warned that the police will act at any illegal gathering, the news portal of the Islamic Republic police reported Oct. 3.
Tehran's governor general Isa Farhadi has also announced that the administration will take necessary measures to end the illegal gathering.
Some hardliner Iranian MPs have attended the gathering and expressed support to protesters.
The Iranian Parliament's Special Commission on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) is going to present its report on Iran's nuclear deal next week.
Afterwards, the parliament will set a date to hold a final vote on the nuclear agreement.
On July 21, the Iranian Parliament formed a committee of 19 individuals to study the nuclear program's agreement that was hammered out by the P5+1(the US, UK, Russia, China, France, Germany) and Iran.
