The Tehran office of Swedish direct-sales cosmetics company Oriflame was shut down by authorities on August 22 and five of its employees were arrested amid allegations that it was running a pyramid scheme and was possibly backed by a spy agency.

On August 28, Iran's Intelligence Minister Heydar Moslehi accused the firm of trying to harm Iran's security.
