Iran’s Police Warn Bazaar Merchants Against Strikes, Donya Says

Oct. 4 (Bloomberg) -- Iran’s police will crack down on shop owners that go on strike, Donya-e-Eqtesad reported, citing senior police commander Khalili Helali.

The closure of shops in the bazaar “with a view to creating economic disruption is unlawful,” Helali was quoted as saying in a report published in the Tehran-based newspaper today. If merchants go on strike, the police will seal their shops with approval from the judiciary, he said.

Helali said a group of individuals had headed to the Grand Bazaar and chanted slogans. He rejected reports that business activity in the area had come to a halt, Donya said.
