Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe released from Iran jail for three days

Richard Ratcliffe, the husband of Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, said she was granted temporary leave from Evin Prison in Tehran on Thursday.

"She immediately joined her four-year-old daughter, Gabriella who welcomed her mom with flowers", he said.

Although the initial release is for three days her lawyer is hopeful that this can be extended, her husband said.

He said his wife had seen media coverage about her temporary release, and was pleased to see the Iranian ambassador to the United Kingdom had tweeted a picture of mother and daughter as they were reunited.

Zaghari-Ratcliffe, a project manager with the Thomson Reuters Foundation, was given a 5-year jail sentence in 2016 after Iranian authorities accused her of spreading propaganda.

Zaghari-Ratcliffe was arrested during a holiday with her toddler daughter in April 2016. "So we call on the Iranian authorities to capitalize on the goodwill from today's announcement by going the whole way and releasing Nazanin and allowing her to go back to her family". We will keep campaigning until she is home in the UK,"the Free Nazanin group said in a statement on Facebook".

She has frequently denied the sedition charge levelled against her, insisting she was in the country on a family visit with her daughter.

Johnson later travelled to Tehran to try and fix the damage, but was unsuccessful in securing her release.

Zaghari-Ratcliffe was warned not to attempt to leave the country while on temporary release, or conduct interviews with local or global media, it added.

"I wasn't expecting it at all when it was mentioned two weeks ago", she was quoted as saying by the campaign.

"This was a very happy surprise after a number of false dawns recently, which had been increasingly unsettling", he added before thanking the UK's new Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt "for all his recent efforts and considerations". "Nazanin is innocent", he said during a short briefing at the United Nations.

Bail for her temporary release was set at one billion rials ($23,800), with her family's home in Tehran used as collateral, the campaign said.

FREE NAZANIN CAMPAIGN Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe's lawyer is hoping that the three days furlough can be extended.
