Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe to appear in Iranian court next month

23 Novembre 2017

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe will appear in an Iranian court on December 10 to face charges of "spreading propaganda", her husband told CNN Thursday.

Zaghari-Ratcliffe found herself at the center of an worldwide dispute between the United Kingdom and Iran following a mistake by British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson.

"She's been told she will appear in court on 10 December", her husband, Richard, told Reuters.

But speaking in Westminster on 1 November, UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson appeared to contradict her account when he said she had been training journalists there.

Mr Johnson has since apologised for the remarks and retracted "any suggestion she was there in a professional capacity".

She has denied all charges against her.

She added: 'I think it's a specific issue in the Sleeping Beauty story about sexual behaviour and consent'. A mother has raised concerns about whether the book Sleeping Beauty is appropriate for children.

He is set to travel to Iran before the end of the year to meet with Zaghari-Ratcliffe at her request.

Zaghari-Ratcliffe, who was arrested in Tehran in April 2016, is now serving a five-year prison term for a conviction on national-security charges.

Richard Ratcliffe said he believed his wife was about to be released before Johnson made his remarks.

Iranian state television has said Johnson's comments showed Zaghari-Ratcliffe's guilt and that she was involved in spying.

In September 2016 she was sentenced to five years in jail on undisclosed charges.

The Thomson Reuters Foundation, a charity organization that is independent of Thomson Reuters and operates independently of Reuters News, said she had been on holiday.
