An Iranian police chief in charge of fighting vice in Tehran was jailed today for reportedly consorting in an underground brothel.
Local media reported that General Reza Zarei was jailed after being caught with six naked women at a prostitution den in the Iranian capital.
Ali Reza Jamshidi, a spokesman for Iran’s judiciary, confirmed today that Mr Zarei had been taken to jail. He refused to elaborate further about the case, however, saying it was now “in the legal stage.”
But officials, speaking anonymously, have supported the allegations, which have been extensively reported in recent weeks.
