Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe ‘has ankle tag removed but faces further court date’

Thomas Hornall, PA
·1-min read

A British woman detained in Iran for nearly five years has had her ankle tag removed but still has to appear before an Iranian court, according to her constituency MP.

British-Iranian dual national Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe has been held since 2016, when she was sentenced to five years in prison over allegations, which she strongly denies, of plotting to overthrow the Iranian government.

The 42-year-old’s family had been waiting to hear news of her fate as Sunday marked the end of her sentence.

Mrs Zaghari-Ratcliffe has been out of prison since last spring due to the coronavirus crisis, but has been held under house arrest at her parents’ house in Tehran.

Her constituency MP, Tulip Siddiq, said she has been in touch with Mrs Zaghari-Ratcliffe’s family, who said she has had her ankle tag removed but has been summoned to court next week.
