Addressing a news conference, Jamshid Rassouli, the spokesman of the Attorney General Office (AGO) said up to 2,527 cases of anti-women violence have so far been investigated all over the country’s provincial attorney offices.
“The entire issues related to violence against women have been assessed fairly and impartially across the country’s provinces,” said the spokesman.
The cases included beating, sexual abuse, forced-marriage, torture, prevention from marriage rights and work and preventing them from property ownership, said the spokesman, as quoted by the statement.
