Iran regime’s lawmakers have been seeking to amend the country’s Code of Criminal Procedure. The proposed amendment would allow judicial and prosecution officials to deny certain detainees the right to access to a lawyer while an investigation against them is open.
The Iranian regime’s legal and judicial parliamentary commission finalised the draft amendment at the beginning of last week and it will be voted upon in the imminent future.
The Iranian Regime’s Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) are “highly likely” to have facilitated attacks last Sunday on four tankers including two Saudi ships off Fujairah in the United Arab Emirates, according to a Norwegian insurers’ report seen by Reuters.
