Tehran Rejects Sex-Abuse Charges Against Diplomat In Brazil

Iran's Foreign Ministry has issued a statement rejecting accusations that an Iranian diplomat in Brazil sexually assaulted young girls in a public swimming pool.

The statement said the accusations against the unnamed diplomat "are all false and baseless."

Brazilian police have said the man inappropriately touched as many as 10 girls aged between 9 and 15 at a pool in the capital, Brasilia, on April 14.

Police detained the man on the scene but released him after learning he was an Iranian diplomat.

Earlier, the Iranian Embassy issued a statement saying the incident was "a misunderstanding due to differences in cultural behavior."

An amusing story nonetheless.. meanwhile the wife was likely sweating over the evening meal at home, mummified inside several layers of "Islamic" hijab. I do hope President Dilma hears of this.

Alidad, you are aware the hijab is only worn outside or when a non family member is present? a customery head scarp is usually what is worn when you are indoors.

The story might be "amusing", I do not recall, however, the RFE/RL publishing articles on just so many "amusing" stories concerning the issue of massive sex abuse within, for example, the Roman Catholic Church.

As an Iranian, I'm really ashamed to have such a jerk as a diplomat. The most embarrassing part is that this shitty government of ours, just ruins the image of out culture in the public eyes just to help a pedophile!
Shame on me! :(

The mass murdering pervert and tyrant Khomeini in his book "Tahrir al-Wasilah" (Nekaah; Question 12) talks about how to have sexual gratification with a baby girl! So this type of behaviour is nothing new to the leaders and officials of the regime left behind by Khomeini and that's why they even welcomed this criminal so-called "diplomat" with flower wreaths.
