Environment secretary under fire for comments following outrage from Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe’s family over Boris Johnson remarks

Michael Gove has risked inflaming the situation of a British mother imprisoned in Iran by saying that he does not know what she was doing in the country, in contradiction of the government’s official position that she was there on holiday.

The environment secretary’s comments on the plight of Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe follow outrage from her family earlier this week after Boris Johnson said she was in Tehran training journalists. The remarks were seized upon by the Iranian state media as a “confession” and are believed to have left her facing an additional five years in prison.
