BEIRUT (Reuters) - Iran’s judiciary must confront those who disrupt economic security, its Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said Wednesday, according to his official website.
“The atmosphere for the work, life and livelihood of the people must be secure,” Khamenei said in a meeting with judiciary officials, according to his site. “And the judiciary must confront those who disrupt economic security.”
Protests broke out in Tehran and other cities on Monday and Tuesday as merchants complained about the sharp fall in the value of the national currency.
