Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe: Foreign Secretary Statement

Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab comments on the removal of Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe’s ankle tag

Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said:

We welcome the removal of Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe’s ankle tag, but Iran continues to put her and her family through a cruel and an intolerable ordeal.
She must be released permanently so she can return to her family in the UK. We will continue to do all we can to achieve this.
We have relayed to the Iranian authorities in the strongest possible terms that her continued confinement is unacceptable.
