Iran asks Spain to extradite former diplomat's playboy son

Iran asks Spain to extradite former diplomat's playboy son


Iran has asked Spain to extradite the son of a retired senior Iranian diplomat who is famous for showing off his lavish
lifestyle on social media.


Sasha Sobhani, a 33-year-old musician, appeared in court in Madrid after Iran accused him of running illegal gambling
websites and money-laundering.


He denied the charges and warned he was at risk of torture if he was sent back.


He said Iran's government was angry about criticism of it he had shared with his 2.6m followers on Instagram.


Mr Sobhani spent much of his childhood living outside the country because of his father's career, which involved postings
to Armenia, Gabon and Venezuela.


He told the Spanish newspaper El Mundo that he had stayed in Venezuela after his father finished as ambassador there
in 2006 and returned to Tehran to serve as deputy foreign minister in the government of then hardline President
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.


Mr Sobhani eventually moved back to Iran, where he gained a following on social media as one the "Rich Kids of Tehran",
an Instagram account that chronicled the lives of the capital's wealthy young elite.


He also ran afoul of the authorities by organising raves. He said he was arrested and sentenced to prison, but that he later
managed to flee to Turkey.



He moved to Spain two years ago, when he began sharing photographs showing himself with scantily clad women, alcohol,
fast cars and private jets.
