(See Related News). The Iranian official was questioned by police following complaints from parents but released after invoking diplomatic immunity.

Journeyman Pictures - Brazil’s Child Sex Abuse (May 2004):

Brazil has become the new paedophile capital of the world. The country's own politicians have been caught colluding in the sex industry. 
"Once I have found someone who helps me and likes me I will leave this life for good," says 12 year old Maiana. Already a veteran of the sex industry, she dreams of being whisked away by one of her foreign clients. But the sex industry is not fuelled by foreign tourists alone. Recent investigations show that sex rings are being run by men at the highest level in society. "There have been cases involving town councillors and mayors," states Waldermar Olivera from the children's charity CEDECA. "In one case the president of the council was abusing a three year old." Children are being sold to brothels abroad for as little as 15 cents. With corruption rife at every level, campaigners are having a tough time cracking down on abusers.

Iranian diplomat accused of Brazil child molestation (bbc)

 

An Iranian diplomat  has been accused of molesting underage girls at a swimming pool in Brasilia. (See Related News). The Iranian official was questioned by police following complaints from parents but released after invoking diplomatic immunity.

Iran's embassy denied the allegations, and said they were the result of a "cultural misunderstanding".

Brazilian Foreign Minister Antonio Patriota called them "very worrying".

The un-named Iranian diplomat was accused of inappropriately touching girls between 9 and 15 years old at a pool in a private club last weekend, Brazilian media reported.

The father of one of the girls told the G1 website that the diplomat was almost lynched by angry parents before security staff intervened.

"People wanted to kill him," the unnamed father said.

'Unacceptable'

 

The Iranian embassy said the allegations were the result of "a misunderstanding resulting from differences in cultural behaviour".

It also accused the Brazilian media of deliberately sensationalising the incident.

But Brazilian Foreign Minister Antonio Patriota said he was taking the allegations very seriously and would ask the Iranian embassy for clarification before deciding what action to take.

"Personally I would consider it unacceptable if any Brazilian diplomat conducted himself in this manner in the country in which he was accredited," Mr Patriota said.
