Son of Iran's ex-president denies business rival's claims of alleged torture in 1990s as Canadian court issues writ in absentia.
Lawyers entered Oxford University Wednesday in an attempt to serve legal papers on the son of a former ruler of Iran, demanding he pay millions in compensation for his "torture" of a business rival.
