Iran sentences Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe to one year in prison
Al Jazeera, 27 Apr 2021
An Iranian Revolutionary court has sentenced a British-Iranian woman, Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, to a one-year jail term after she was found guilty of spreading propaganda.
The latest conviction dates back to Zaghari-Ratcliffe allegedly taking part in a protest in front of the Iranian embassy in London 12 years ago.
Zaghari-Ratcliffe had just finished serving a five-year sentence on separate charges for plotting against Iran's government.
Her family says she is being used as a bargaining chip and UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has condemned Iran's move.
