Iranian diplomat leaves Brazil amid sexual abuse allegations

(CNN) — Iran has recalled a diplomat from Brazil amid allegations he sexually abused children at a swimming pool, state media in Brazil reported.

The case will be “seriously considered,” Ramin Mehmanparast, a spokesman for the Iranian foreign affairs ministry, said Tuesday, according to Agencia Brasil.

The 51-year-old diplomat allegedly fondled the genitals of boys and girls — ages 9 to 14 — on April 14 at Neighborhood Social Club No. 1 in the capital, Brasilia, the news agency said.

It was not immediately known in what capacity the man worked at the Iranian embassy in Brazil.
