Iran Releases French Woman Detained for Nearly 4 Months

Sunday, 24 February 2019 12:37 PM EST

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran's official IRNA news agency is saying that the country has released a French businesswoman detained for nearly four months.

The Sunday report quotes the spokesman for the Iranian foreign ministry, Bahram Ghasemi, as saying Iran has released Nelly Erin-Cambervelle, a 59-year-old businesswoman from Martinique, who was in jail for entering the country illegally.

Ghasemi said the French national was released "in recent days," according to the report, which did not elaborate.

Last week, French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said France was in touch with Iran to improve conditions for Erin-Cambervelle, who was arrested in October on the Iranian Persian Gulf island of Kish.

France co-signed the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran and is working to keep it alive despite the U.S.'s withdrawal in 2018.
