Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe: Iran grants temporary release
August 23, 2018 4:10 pm
A British-Iranian woman has been reunited with her family after being granted a three-day release from prison in Iran.
Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe was jailed for five years in 2016 after being convicted of spying, which she denies.
She said she was “overwhelmed” and it would be “awesome” for her four-year-old daughter to “have a mummy again”.
Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt said her imprisonment was a “gross injustice” and the release should be permanent.
The Free Nazanin campaign group said a three-day release was “standard practice” ahead of lengthier times out of jail and her lawyer was due to apply for an extension on Saturday.
