Question for Foreign and Commonwealth Office

​We have never seen the charges against Mrs Zaghari-Ratcliffe and are deeply concerned about reports that she faces a further charge. We continue to raise all our dual nationals detained in Iran with the Iranian Government at every opportunity, and make decisions in line with what we believe will produce the best outcomes in their cases. However, we will not be providing a continuous commentary. We judge this will not be helpful, or in the best interest of each case.
