Police Arrest Man Who Conned 17 'Wives'

December 13, 1999, TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iranian police have arrested a man who stole money from 17 women he had made his concubines, a newspaper reported Monday.

The man, identified only as Mohammad, admitted to police that he befriended women he picked up in his taxi and persuaded them to marry him under Iran's temporary marriage laws, the daily Azad said. He would later "borrow" money from them and disappear.

Under Iran's Shi'ite Muslim laws, a man may have up to four wives and any number of "temporary wives" simultaneously. Iranian Islamic leaders stress recommendations that only men who can treat their wives with absolute equality may be polygamous.
