Hamsarchat.com, which promises to help users find husbands and wives, was fined and ordered to pay back money collected from clients, the Guardian reports.
The move came after a judge consulted senior ayatollahs – known as “sources of emulation” – following a complaint from Teheran’s public prosecutor.
The site marketed itself as “Iran’s most complete spouse-finding website” an promised to link members with “the closest person or persons to your standards” in return for a 25,000 rial (£1.66) fee, the paper said.”(End of Excerpt) Read the rest here: (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/middleeast/iran/3704994/Iranian-dating-site-banned-for-promoting-prostitution.html
