My Statement on the Continued Detention of Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe

Earlier this week I went to the Iranian Embassy to meet with Richard Ratcliffe. the husband of Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe who has been wrongfully imprisoned in Iran since 2016.

Richard is currently on hunger strike outside the Iranian Embassy in London in support of his wife Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, who is also on hunger strike in protest over her wrongful imprisoned in Iran since 2016.

I admire the determination of both and will continue to call for the immediate release of Nazanin by the Iranian regime.
