Iran: Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe to wait 'another day in limbo' as decision delayed

Responding to news that the British national Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe will have to wait until tomorrow (19 April) for an update on whether her furlough is to be extended beyond this weekend, Kate Allen, Amnesty International UK’s Director, said:

“That Nazanin and her family must wait another day in limbo for a decision is deeply disappointing.

“There should be no question of her being sent back to Evin Prison - not in a few weeks’ time, not ever.

“Nazanin is a prisoner of conscience, convicted after a deeply unfair trial, and she should never have been behind bars at all.

“It is time for Nazanin to come home. We’re urging the Iranian authorities to do the right thing tomorrow and free Nazanin.”
