Iranian ambassador summoned regarding Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe

UK

LONDON(FastMail) -Iranian Ambassador Hamid Baeidinejad was summoned to the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) today following news that Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe is to be recalled to court.

 

Thomas Drew, FCDO Director General for Middle East, North Africa, Afghanistan and Pakistan, conveyed the UK’s grave concern at this development and called for Iran to end her arbitrary detention.


 

An FCDO spokesperson said:”We have made it clear to the Iranian ambassador that his country’s treatment of Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe is unjustified and unacceptable, and is causing an enormous amount of distress”.

 

Iran is further tarnishing its reputation through its actions towards Nazanin. It is time to end her arbitrary detention and that of the other dual British nationals it is holding.
