Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe was ordered to appear again in an Iranian court on charges of “propaganda against Iran”.

The British-Iranian aid worker said she has been battling post-traumatic stress disorder and depression caused by the torture she suffered in prison since 2016 due to spying charges.

She was released at the end of a five-year prison sentence on the previous Sunday but had been summoned to court again on Sunday.

Tulip Siddiq, the Labour MP for Hampstead and Kilburn, updated the court decision on Twitter that “no verdict was given but it should be delivered within a week”.

Her husband Richard previously declared on Saturday that there was “jeopardy ahead of us in terms of what’s about to happen, we don’t know if it’s a big bad thing, a little bad thing or an uncertain thing that’s going to be dragged out for quite a while”.

Meanwhile, Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab called on the Iranian government to return Nazanin to the UK immediately.
