The country’s supreme court upheld the conviction of Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, who has been held on national security charges for over a year
Iran’s supreme court has upheld the conviction of a British-Iranian woman sentenced to five years in jail on non-specific charges relating to national security, dashing her hopes of overturning the verdict through legal avenues.
Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, a project manager with the Thomson Reuters Foundation, the news agency’s charitable arm, had lodged a final appeal in January after the confirmation of her sentence in a lower court. Her husband, Richard Ratcliffe, said on Monday that the supreme court had rejected her appeal.
