Nazanin TV - Amnesty International Press Release -
My name is Nazanin Zaghari-Radcliffe. I am a hostage. What they are putting me through is outrageous. I haven’t committed a crime. I have spent nine months in solitary confinement spending every night away from my child. I’ve never done any propaganda against the Iranian regime. I am not a political person. This should end. I haven’t done anything wrong. I should go home. Nazanin, Channel 4 2023

Responding to comments from the Prime Minister Theresa May at Prime Minister's Questions in the House of Commons today concerning the British national Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe who has been jailed for five years in Iran, Amnesty International UK’s Individuals At Risk Campaign Manager Kathy Voss said:
‘Theresa May says the Government is doing everything possible over Ms Zaghari-Ratcliffe’s deeply troubling case, but far more can and should be done and the Government shouldn’t rest until she’s brought home.
‘Zaghari-Ratcliffe is a prisoner of conscience languishing in Tehran’s notorious Evin prison following an unfair trial on bogus ‘national security’ charges – the UK should be publicly calling for her release and return to the UK, not paying lip service to a miscarriage of justice.
‘Unsurprisingly, Ms Zaghari-Ratcliffe’s husband Richard feels let down by the Government. As a first step to properly supporting him and Nazanin, the Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson should at least agree to meet Mr Ratcliffe, something he has so far failed to do.’ Amnesty International press release 23rd November 2016, ‘UK should be doing more for prisoner of conscience Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe
