The Labour Party leader has said that she received a "disturbing" letter from the Iranian Ambassador after she spoke about the protests in Iran.
The Revolutionary Guard, which is part of the Iranian armed forces, said yesterday that it was to be the last day of 'riots' but protectors have not agreed to stop, despite threats of violence from the state.
Earlier this month Ivana Bacik TD accused the regime of "brutal violence" in attempts to stop the protests.
Deputy Bacik told On The Record that the Iranian Ambassador responded with an angry letter.
"At that point, we'd seen documented cases of such brutal treatment: killings, beatings, detention", she said.
"Allegedly killings of over 200 protesters, the killing of Mahsa Amini on the 16th September."
"So I spoke in the Dáil 19th October and on the 25th October I received a very very disturbing letter from the Iranian Ambassador suggesting to me that I had been guilty of exaggeration in my emotive expressions."
Some Iranians are calling for change after a 22-year-old woman, Masha Amini, died in police custody after being accused of violating Iran's dress code in public.
Under the law adopted in 1983, four years after Iran's Islamic revolution, all women must conceal their hair with a headscarf in public and wear loose fitting trousers under their coats.
The Guidance Patrol, the religious morality police of the Iranian government, found that Ms Amini was not wearing a headscarf.
Authorities have said that Ms Amini died of a heart attack and deny allegations from her family that she had been beaten by police.
Iran Human Rights said this week said that 234 protesters had been killed by security forces.
