According to the new announcement by Iran’s judiciary service, all the local dating websites in the country must obtain license for their activities from the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports.
Masoud Amini, one of the officials of Iran’s judiciary system, said local dating websites must collect their allowances from Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports in less than 6 months. “Currently none of these websites have license and base on the rules it is illegal to run this type of websites. But we allow the owners of dating websites to request for license and certification from Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports.” Masoud Amini said.
This decision has been made by Internet filtering committee and judiciary system. Recently Iran’s police tried to sue the owners of dating websites but due to lack of rules in this field, they couldn’t process their operations. On the other hand, Iranian government doesn’t have any control over the activities inside dating websites. By issuing licenses and certifications, they will be allowed to get control of these websites and apply their own policies.
