      Tehran, 29 May (AKI) - In the four weeks since a highly publicised government
      moralisation campaign kicked off, 14,635 people were temporarily detained
      under strict new Islamic dress code laws punishing offenders with arrest.
      Another 67,000 people were reprimanded by police, according to a tally kept by
      the local Rooz daily based on police statements. Only in airports and train
      stations some 1,115 people, mostly women, were arrested while 17,135 were not
      allowed to board planes or trains as they were not dressed properly.
