The lawyer for the British detainee of Iranian origin, Nazanin Zaghri, said that his client was finally released after five years in prison in Iran.
Hajjat Karmani, Zaghari’s lawyer, said: “My client ended her verdict, her husband was released today, because she was out of detention a year ago … and a date was set in the court to hear the second case of my client on March 13, on charges of engaging in propaganda activities against the regime.”
It is reported that she was in her house outside the prison a year ago due to Corona, but she was prevented from going more than 300 meters outside her home, by being placed in her leg.
Zaghari-Ratcliffe, who works as a project manager for the Thomson Reuters Foundation, was arrested in April 2016 at a Tehran airport while she was returning to Britain with her daughter after visiting her family in Iran.
She was sentenced to five years in prison for “conspiring to overthrow the religious establishment in Iran,” and both her family and the charity, which operates independently of “Thomson Reuters” and its news agency, deny the accusation.
