Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe freed in Iran but may face new charges

BBC, 08 Mar 2021
Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe has been released from house arrest in Iran after completing a five year sentence on spying charges, raising hopes that she may be a step closer to returning to the UK.

However Mrs Ratcliffe, who has British-Iranian dual nationality, has been told she will have to go to court in a week’s time to face more charges, according to her lawyer.

The British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said she should be released “permanently” so that she can be re-united with her family in the UK.
