NAZANIN ZAGHARI-RATCLIFFE (No. 2)
EDM #2521
Tabled 20 June 2019
2017-19 Session
That this House strongly condemns the Iranian Government for continuing to hold Ms Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, a dual British-Iranian national, in arbitrary detention and calls for her immediate release; expresses dismay that Ms Zaghari-Ratcliffe has been detained for over three years; supports Ms Zaghari-Ratcliffe and her husband Richard Ratcliffe as they continue a hunger strike in protest at Ms Zaghari-Ratcliffe's arbitrary detention; condemns the Embassy of the Iranian Republic in the UK for disrupting Mr Ratcliffe's protest; urges the UK Government to continue to identify and intervene in cases where British nationals face grave human rights violations in Iran; expresses concern that as diplomatic relations between the West and Iran deteriorate, due to aggressive actions in the Middle East, that British-Iranians will be put at greater risk of arbitrary detention in Iran; and calls on the UK Government to state that in all cases involving British nationals or dual nationals imprisoned abroad, any threat of or actual torture or ill-treatment will not be tolerated and will be publicly condemned by the Government, and that the human rights of UK dual nationals detained in Iran must be a red line in any future trade deals negotiated with Iran.
