Iranian Hansard

leave a comment »

The dispute from the over the alleged attempt in Iran to make non-Muslims wear badges, etc rolls on.

I was interested in why it was so hard to verify if a law in Iran had or had not been passed?

Does the Iranian parliament not have an equivalent of Hansard or a list of recently passed legislation?

Surely, in the 21st century that is not too much to ask for ?

By simply referring to such a list, as with the Congressional Record, it would be simple enought to confirm or deny the substance of the story?

Maybe they have more important things to spend their money on
