At an Iranian news conference earlier this month the association’s head, Afshin Nemati, helped spread word that Iran’s government is cracking down on unacceptable haircuts on men.

Nemati claims to live in Toronto and his business website states he has a Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) from York University.
But that’s not true either. York does not offer a Doctor of Business Administration, and its registrar’s office has no record of Nemati.
