Man arrested for his online claims of having sex with to a 9-year-old girl
IRAN  - A young man who claimed to have sex with a 9-year-old girl with the consent of his father was arrested after his video went viral.

Habibolah Masoudifard, the Deputy Head of State Welfare Organization of Iran for Social Affairs, touched upon a video clip surfaced on social media applications and said, "After seeing this video, I immediately called judiciary officials and requested them to sue the person in the clip. Also, if the story recounted in the video is verified, then the girl's father and brother will be sued and prosecuted through legal channels."

In a viral video, a young man is boasting about his temporary marriage (Nikah mut'ah) with a 9-year-old girl, saying that he had married the girl with his parent's consent.

In addition to the numerous reactions of users on social media, this issue has angered children's rights activists.

"After further follow-up with judiciary officials, it was announced that an arrest warrant was issued for the person whose face is identifiable in the video," he added.

"All people of our country are against such acts, but such minor and trivial cases should be decisively and strongly condemned and sued to firstly do not allow the repetition of such cases in the society, and secondly punish all those have been involved in this issue at any level, to not witness such acts again," said the Deputy Head of State Welfare Organization of Iran for Social Affairs.

"Of course, there should be further measures against child marriage to not witness such moves in the society again. However, presently, at the current stage, we have to undertake a swift and strong measure against these people to let it have a deterrence effect," stressed Masoudifard.
