Foreign Secretary Statement On Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe: 16 October 2021

Foreign Secretary Liz Truss said:

"Iran’s decision to proceed with these baseless charges against Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe is an appalling continuation of the cruel ordeal she is going through.

"Instead of threatening to return Nazanin to prison Iran must release her permanently so she can return home.

"We are doing all we can to help Nazanin get home to her young daughter and family and I will continue to press Iran on this point."
