Women make up a third of Iran’s homeless population

Homeless women in Iran

NCRI - Women make up one third of homeless people living on the streets in Iran, according to a senior official of the Iranian regime.

"Our research indicates that there are 15,000 people sleeping in cardboard boxes in the country, of who 5,000 are women," Shahindokht Mollavardi said on Saturday.

Mollavardi, a vice president in the cabinet of Hassan Rouhani, made the remarks in an interview with the state-run news agency ILNA.

The true number of Iranians living on the streets is substantially higher than official records.

The mullahs’ infamous henchmen in the prison, including the likes of Amirian, Baqeri and Zolfali last Thursday attacked the ordinary prisoners’ section. Prisoners in Ward 3 were brutally beaten with clubs as they took their turn in the prison courtyard.
