"Amnesty International is also urging the authorities to protect all detainees from torture and other ill-treatment and to reveal the fate and whereabouts of dozens of detainees whose families have not heard from them since their arrests", the rights group said.
The first period started Tuesday and marked the reinstatement of sanctions on the purchase of U.S. bank notes by the Iranian government, Iran's gold trade and other financial and industrial transactions.
