Another Prostitution Ring Busted… Tehran Police Chief Caught in Bed With 6 Hookers

The Tehran Police Chief, Reza Zarei, was caught in a bed with six— Yes SIX —prostitutes.
AKI reported:

Tehran’s police chief, Reza Zarei (photo), has been arrested after he was found nude in a local brothel with six naked prostitutes, according to report on the Iranian Farda News.

Farda News is a website said to be close to the mayor of Tehran and former chief of the police forces, Mohammed Bagher Qalibaf.

Following the raid, Zarei stepped down from his post as police chief. The news of his arrest however was not reported by any official Iranian news agency.

According to a popular Iranian website Gooya, the order to raid the brothel was given directly by Ayatollah Mahmoud Hashemi Shahroudi, chief of the judicial authorities.

Before he was arrested, Zarei was in charge of the programme for the ‘moralisation of the city’.

Reza Zarei led the modesty crackdown on women in Tehran where an unspecified number of the women taken into custody were also forced to undergo psychological counseling.

Zarei led the morality crackdown in Tehran this past year.
This is what he told AFP back in October 2007:

Since the drive began police in his region have handed out 113,454 warnings to women found to have infringed Iran’s strict Islamic dress rules.

“Of these 1,600 cases have been given to the judiciary” for further investigation, he said.

He added that 5,700 people — including 1,400 men — have been sent to “guidance classes” on how to behave in society.

Maybe the pressure was just too much for him.
