"Iranian Cyber Police (FATA) is a unit of the Islamic Republic of Iran
Police, founded in January 23, 2011. In 2009, Iran's Police Chief Brigadier
General Esmail Ahmadi-Moqaddam announced plans to set up a cyber police division
to counter "internet crimes." On January 23, 2011, Iran's Cyber Police (FATA)
unit was launched with Brigadier General Kamal Hadianfar as the head of the new
force. At the inaugural ceremony, Police Chief Esmail Ahmadi-Moqaddam said the
unit was now operational in Tehran and that by the end of the Iranian year,
police stations throughout the country would have their own cyber units"
