Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe sentenced to another year in prison in Iran

International Editor

The government has condemned Iran’s decision to sentence Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe to another year in prison as “totally inhumane and wholly unjustified”.

The British-Iranian woman has already served a five-year term for spying charges which she’s strongly denied.

Now she’s been detained again on a charge of  “spreading propaganda against the system” and banned from leaving Iran for a year.
