The Spokesperson of Judiciary Branch Gholamhossein Mohseni Ejei highlighted in the 123rd press conference the similarity between the days leading to the Islamic Revolution and the recent protests and said that the enemy provoked riots in Iran in order to lead astray the rightful demands of the nation.

At least 22 people died and hundreds were arrested in the anti-government demonstrations that began in late December.

Mr Mohseni Ejei said 55 people were still being detained in Tehran while some of the 400 held across the country were released on Saturday and Sunday.

The protests erupted almost three weeks ago over economic issues, but grew into widespread unrest condemning the Islamic regime as a whole, with attacks on government and police buildings.

Last week, an Iranian reformist lawmaker, Mahmoud Sadeghi, said some 3,700 people were arrested across the country.

"Another recent incident that was utterly disgraceful was that the USA sought pretexts to impose sanctions on Iranian authorities, the most important of whom was the Judiciary Chief Ayatollah Amoli Larijani", he added. Pictures and videos of the protests were often posted on social media to encourage more people to take part.
