August 2018: Nazanin Ratcliffe

Nazanin Ratcliffe Metro August 2018

Nazanin Ratcliffe is a local resident who has been held in the notorious Evin Jail in Iran for two years, she was taken by the authorities when she was visiting her family from the airport on her way home to London. Local residents and the Ham&High have been supporting the campaign to get Nazanin released, with her four-year old daughter, Gabriella, who is being looked after by her Iranian Grandparents in Iran.

As you will have heard, Nazanin was allowed home for three days to stay with her family over a weekend but with real cruelty the Iranian government have returned her to jail on Sunday after spending three days on temporary release, she has since been taken to a prison clinic after falling unconscious.

Zaghari-Ratcliffe, 40, had a panic attack for a second consecutive day on Wednesday, collapsed in prison and was unconscious, according to a former political prisoner and her family. She has been serving a five-year sentence for spying, in a high-profile case that has overshadowed British-Iranian relations for nearly two years since she was arrested in April 2016.

If you would like to be kept up to date of any events that are being held or you have an idea of an event to promote this injustice ,kindly contact me or the Ham&High. Diplomatic as ever, Richard Radcliffe, who conducts himself with true dignity is suggesting that we have a poetry reading day by Nazanin’s garden by the Royal Free garden, in the near future to be announced on the Belsize Village website.

Richard, despite his efforts, has been denied a visa to visit his family in Iran, Please continue to show support for this amazingly strong family.
