Motion text

That this House expresses grave concern regarding the cases of Mr Kamal Foroughi and Ms Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, British dual nationals, who are currently imprisoned without charge in Iran; is worried for the health and safety of Mr Foroughi and Ms Zaghari-Ratcliffe who have both been kept in solitary confinement at times and, in the case of Mr Foroughi, has been denied urgent medical help; urges the Government to publicly call for the immediate release of Mr Foroughi and the release of Ms Zaghari-Ratcliffe unless she is formally charged and granted a fair trial; supports the recent UN statement calling for the immediate and unconditional release of British-Iranian dual nationals; and calls on the Government to ensure that both Mr Foroughi and Ms Zaghari-Ratcliffe's cases are raised in all private discussions with the Iranian authorities.
