Brother of Hassan Rouhani, Hossein Fereydoun, has been arrested in Iran.
He is charged with financial crimes, France Press reports, citing a court representative. “Yesterday he was released on bail but because he failed to fulfill its conditions he was put under custody,” the agency representative said, RIA Novosti reports.
Several investigations are underway against Fereydoun and a number of other persons. Some of the suspects are under custody.
In 2015, Hossein Fereydoun acted as a special envoy at the talks on Iran’s nuclear program.
