United Kingdom foreign secretary to meet husband of British woman jailed in Iran

Downing Street confirmed that the Foreign Office is looking into the possible use of the status after Richard Ratcliffe spoke with the Foreign Secretary by phone at the weekend.

Richard will be accompanied by his father John, and Hampstead and Kilburn MP Tulip Siddiq.

Her husband has campaigned for her release and has insisted she was on holiday with their 18-month-old daughter Gabriella so the child could meet her grandparents in Iran.

The meeting will also discuss concerns about Mrs Zaghari-Ratcliffe's health and Mr Johnson's plan to travel to Iran before the end of the year.

Richard Dalton, the UK's ambassador to Iran from 2003 to 2006, said on Tuesday that the foreign secretary's options are limited and he warned that resolution of the case was unlikely to be swift.

Mr Ratcliffe said Mr Johnson had told him he was "deeply sorry for Nazanin's suffering", but did not say if the Foreign Secretary had made a personal apology for his blunder. "The Foreign Office remains very concerned about all our dual nationals detained in Iran, and is doing everything it can in each of their cases, including trying to secure access to them and ensure their welfare".

During the session, Boris Johnson also apologised for previously telling a Commons committee that she was training journalists, a move which appeared to risk seeing her jail sentence being doubled.

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe: Boris Johnson to meet husband

Johnson had "made it clear that no stone should be left unturned" in securing her release, the statement added. Three days after he made the comments, she was taken unexpectedly before a court and accused of "spreading propaganda against the regime".

The Herald recently reported that Nazanin, who is already serving a five-year jail term, is now facing fresh charges and could face an additional 16 years of imprisonment if convicted.

Mr Ratcliffe said his wife is "on the verge of a nervous breakdown" and angry at the Foreign Secretary for allowing the situation to become "a shambles".

Mr Johnson's comments had led to calls for him to quit, but Mr Ratcliffe has said it is not in his wife's interests for there to be any resignations, and instead the Foreign Secretary should clean up the mess he had created. There are also fears she is developing cancer after finding lumps in her breasts.

The Thomson Reuters Foundation, a charity organisation that is independent of Thomson Reuters and operates independently of Reuters News, said Zaghari-Ratcliffe had been on holiday and had not been teaching journalism in Iran.

This led United Nations human rights experts to express "grave" concerns for her welfare, calling on the Iranian authorities to release her at once.
