‘All that is on my mind is to be back home’, the Briton jailed in Iran since 2016 told protesters marching for her release, including Emma Thompson
Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, the British woman being held in Iran, has spoken to a rally in London by phone from prison, saying that returning home to her family is “all that is on my mind”.
Zaghari-Ratcliffe has been imprisoned in Tehran since April 2016, when she was arrested at the city’s airport after a holiday with her then 22-month-old daughter Gabriella.
Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe is a 38-year-old Iranian-British dual national who has been jailed in Iran since April 2016. She has been accused of attempting to orchestrate a “soft overthrow” of the Islamic Republic. She and her three-year-old daughter, Gabriella, were about to return to the UK from Iran after a family visit when she was arrested. Since then, she has spent most of her time in Evin prison in Tehran, separated from her daughter.
