Tehran refuses to acknowledge dual-national woman jailed in Iran is a British citizen
Iran has rejected the UK’s claim that Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe is entitled to British diplomatic protection, insisting she is solely an Iranian citizen and therefore ineligible for such status.
In an escalation of the standoff with Tehran, the Foreign Office announced on Thursday that Zaghari-Ratcliffe qualified for diplomatic protection, a step that raises her case from a consular matter to the level of a dispute between the two states. The British-Iranian dual national was arrested three years ago for spying, a charge she denies, and is serving a five-year sentence.
