Iran arrest partyOfficials in the northern city of Kelardasht in Mazandaran Province say 13 young men and women were arrested Thursday in a “mixed-gender night party”, according to the state-run Fars news agency.

Fars known to be affiliated to the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) said six women and seven men were arrested in a night party where alcohol was being served but didn’t provide further details on those arrested.

Drinking alcohol and attending parties of unrelated men and women is illegal in Iran.

The regime does not recognize or respect Iranian’s right to privacy and mobilizes all its forces to crack down on civil liberties.

Hundreds of people have been detained in private mixed gender parties over the past year. 

In late October, the Iranian authorities arrested 15 men and women at a mixed-gender party at the Iranian island of Qeshm.
