THE husband of Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe said on Saturday that her temporary leave from prison in Iran has been extended.
Richard Ratcliffe said that his wife’s temporary release from Evin prison in Tehran, granted in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, had been extended by two weeks and will now run until April 18.
Mr Ratcliffe added that his wife’s file has been put forward to the Iranian Prosecutor General to be considered for clemency.
The British-Iranian woman has been living in relative isolation at her parents’ house in Tehran while the country struggles to get to grips with the outbreak.
She has to wear an ankle tag and can only go out within a 300-metre range.
Iran is among the countries worst affected by Covid-19, reporting over 29,000 confirmed cases and more than 2,200 deaths from the disease.
The family’s MP Tulip Siddiq tweeted that every day Ms Zaghari-Ratcliffe is out of prison is “better than the alternative.”
But she said that the main focus remained “getting her home and away from the danger of coronavirus in Iran as soon as possible.”
