A group of the blind people, along with the head and officials of the state welfare organization, met with judiciary chief this morning on the occasion of "World White Cane Day" to examine legal obstacles to the social participation of the blind.

Mr.Ezhei described one of the honors as the brilliance and medals of our country's veterans and the disabled in the World Paralympic Games in recent weeks.

Mr.Ezhei added: "In this Act, a staff with 13 members headed by the Minister of Interior and secretary of the head of the Welfare Organization is foreseen and a committee with 26 members headed by the first vice president is appointed to monitor the implementation of the Act."

Legal Deputy of the Judiciary to consider the proposals of the National Network of the Blind to facilitate and remove legal barriers to their social participation

The head of the judiciary, referring to the legal and humanitarian duties of all agencies to pursue the rights and demands of the country's disabled, asked his legal deputy to review the proposals of the National Network of the Blind to facilitate and remove legal barriers to social participation of this group. It is not a law and it is enforceable, it should be implemented quickly.

Mr.Ezhei also agreed with the proposal of some blind people to set up an office to follow up on their legal and judicial problems, according to which it was decided to form four-member working groups in provincial centers to resolve issues related to the blind in court before entering court.
