According to a report of three responsible for minor, one of the girls, aged 14, realized that Iran had touched other girls and asked him to stop. She went to tell the lifeguard club, which ordered the closure of the pool. The father of one of the girls, Fernandes José Roberto Rodrigues, returned to the pool and tried to hurt Ghorbani.
After the action of the security of the club, the diplomat, four girls and their parents were the 1st DP on Saturday afternoon. Deputy Police Chief Johnson Miller, who accompanied the complaint, confirmed the reports, but despite the blatant, Ghorbani was released for having diplomatic immunity. "We find that this gentleman was the diplomatic mission of Iran in Brasilia. In this condition, he was under the cloak of diplomatic immunity. We made a record of the occurrence. We will forward it to the Foreign Ministry. If it were ordinary people, he would be responding by Article 217 A, for rape of vulnerable, with a penalty of 8 to 15 years in prison. Would be considered flagrant, and would be arrested, "he said.
Ghorbani, who has over 50 years, is the third in the hierarchy of the Iranian embassy in Brasilia. The embassy confirms that he is a member of the diplomatic corps, and is in Brazil for nearly two years, but says science has taken charge.

This is absolutely revolting! Since he is from Iran, he'll just get send to another country. I doubt his government will do anything to him.
The Brazilian government should throw him in the Amazon River with all the crocodiles and anacondas.
