Lyn comments on the cases of British-Iranian dual nationals

Lyn has called upon the Government to do more to secure the release of two British-Iranian dual nationals, Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe and Kamal Foroughi, from detention in Iran.


Speaking on the issue, Lyn said “The British-Iranian citizens Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe and Kamal Foroughi remain imprisoned in Iran without access to proper legal processes and under conditions which have already caused serious damage to their health and well-being.

I call for the immediate release of these citizens from imprisonment within Iran, and I want to see our Government putting proper diplomatic pressure to ensure this as well. British dual nationals are still UK citizens, and our Government needs to start giving them the support they deserve."
