Iranian authorities have arrested famous pop singer Amir Hossein Maghsoudloo, known by his stage name Tataloo, after Turkish police turned him over to Iran, the judiciary said Wednesday.

Maghsoudloo, 36, a singer, rapper and songwriter, had been living in Istanbul since 2018 following numerous arrests in the Islamic republic and an official refusal to grant him a performing licence.

Tataloo “was arrested with a court order after being turned over to Iran through the Bazargan border crossing” in the northwest of Iran, said the judiciary’s Mizan Online news agency.

It added that “numerous complaints had been filed against the singer, the most important ones being complaints filed by under-18 youngsters and their families”.

Mizan charged that “Tataloo has taken extensive measures to spread corruption and prostitution among young people,” alleging he had invited under-18-year-olds to his Istanbul residence.
