TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The cultural deputy of Tehran municipality is now in Tehran after short detention in a Kuwait airport due to a problem caused by visa requirements.

Hojjatoleslam Meysam Amroudi, the deputy head of Tehran municipality for cultural and social affairs, has been arrested in Kuwait City airport while returning to Iran from a personal, unofficial visit to the Arab country.

An informed source had told the Tasnim News Agency that the arrest was caused by a visa problem.

Amroudi left Kuwait on Tuesday after the visa problem was resolved.

Amroudi used to be heading Iranian schools in Kuwait. He had once been reportedly deported from Kuwait due to his religious and anti-Zionist activities a few years ago.
