"We don't support Social Media ban": Judiciary chief

IRAN  - Iran's Judiciary Chief Ayatollah Sadeq Amoli Larijani on Monday stressed the need to "regularize" the social media in Iran following the recent riots which led the country to ban the popular Telegram and Instagram applications for over a week.

"We do not support a permeant ban for all of the social media; however, it is necessary that certain measures are adopted to protect national security and people's right."

Addressing senior Iranian judiciary officials, he also urged the judges to practice "Islamic kindness" in the trial of those arrested in the recent riots.

More than 450 people who had taken part in riots have been arrested by the police, according to deputy governor of Tehran province; mostly released on bail last Saturday.

"Some of the detainees have been leading the riots while many, who have no criminal background, have been tricked and fooled to cause unrest and deserve a second chance."

He praised the security forces attempts in reviving the law and order in the country and called on the government to answer the legitimate needs of the people, including their employment and economic problems.
