Iran’s supreme leader appointed new police commander to ensure public safety amid anti-hijab Protests

Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, has appointed a new police commander to ensure that public safety is seen after deadly protests swept the country.

Brigadier Ahmadreza Radan, who succeeded Hossein Ashtari, who led the Armed Forces for eight years, as the head of the Police Investigation Unit, reported to the state-run Islamic Republic news agency.

According to the statement, Khamenei urged Radan to “protect the safety of the people and secure the public welfare” and improve the “competence” of the police force.

The shift comes in the wake of nationwide protests that have gripped Iran since 22-year-old Mahsa Amini died on September 16 in police custody after being arrested for wearing inappropriate clothing in accordance with Iran’s Islamic law. It came out after the crackdown by the Korean Security Forces.
