To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what representations he has made to his counterpart in Iran on the outcome of the appeal against conviction by Nazanin Zaghari Ratcliffe.
31 January 2017
We were disappointed to hear the outcome of Mrs Zaghari-Ratcliffe's appeal and understand how distressing this must be for her family. I have since spoken to the Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Ravanchi to express our concerns. I also raised the case during my recent visit to Iran. I have met Mrs Zaghari-Ratcliffe's family both in the UK and in Iran and we will continue to support them during this difficult period. My officials remain in regular contact with them.
