MANY of your readers will have been following the distressing case of Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, the British woman detained in Iran for nearly five years after a grossly unfair trial.

Nazanin is just one UK-Iranian dual-national targeted by the Iranian authorities in recent years.

Another is Anoosheh Ashoori, a 66-year-old former engineer subjected to a sham trial that involved “confessions” extracted under torture.

We’re working closely with both families to press the UK government to do more to secure Nazanin and Anoosheh’s release.

The former foreign secretary Jeremy Hunt has recently criticised the government for not doing more to help them.

He’s right, and we’ll be pressing for more action in the coming weeks.

Readers can stay in touch with our campaign for Nazanin and Anoosheh here, where they can also watch our very moving 10-minute film with the families made shortly before Christmas.
