Tehran, YJC. The Minister of Health has said that there is no difference between doctors and judges and they must also be authorized to carry self-defense equipment.

Mohammadhassan Tariqat Monfared said in an interview with ISNA "There is no difference between judges, doctors, and other people in society. If the security system decides extraordinarily that doctors must carry self-defense tools it will surely pursue the issue itself.”

In 2010 an agreement was made between the Police and the Medical System Organization where all members of the organization could be able to carry self-defense equipment after qualified by the police. But the issue has raised some criticism by medical ethics experts and even doctors who believe it to shatter the wall of trust between the doctor and the patient.
