The official from one of the most prominent volleyball federations in the world has caused an outrageous scandal upon the end of the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.



A 53-year-old Mansour Damirchi of Iran’s Volleyball Federation was caught while trying to steal goods from a shop in Copacabana on Thursday, August 25.

According to the Rio police, he was heading towards exit door without paying for some products, which he hid in his waist, when was arrested.

As g1.globo.com published, Damirchi was taken to the police station and released after paying bail, but he will still have to answer for the crime. His passport was seized to prevent him from leaving Brazil.
