‘Until they are out, I will not be free’: Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe on Iranian prisoners

Iran says that more than 22,000 people who were detained during anti-government protests have been pardoned by the country’s supreme leader.

The protests have been a cause the British-Iranian woman Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe has been supporting, in the year since she was released from detention in Iran accused of spying against the regime.

Now the family’s struggle over her detention has been revealed in an extraordinary documentary – following her husband’s efforts to juggle campaigning with looking after their daughter – over the five years since Nazanin was arrested.

Containing material captured by Nazanin herself never been seen before – it will be shown on Channel 4 this Thursday.

We sat down with Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe – and asked her how she was adjusting to life back home.
