Family: British-Iranian Woman Held in Iran Appears in Court

Tuesday, 02 August 2016 09:47 AM

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — The family of a British-Iranian woman held in Iran says she's appeared in court for the first time and her case will be heard by the same judge who sentenced a Washington Post journalist to prison.

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, who works for the Thomson Reuters Foundation, the charitable arm of the news agency, has been held in Iran since April 3.

Her husband, Richard Ratcliffe, said in a statement Tuesday that she appeared in Tehran's Revolutionary Court and her case will be heard by Judge Abolghassem Salavati. Salavati is known as for his tough sentences and has heard other politically charged cases, including the one involving Post journalist Jason Rezaian.

Zaghari-Ratcliffe is among a number of Iranian dual nationals detained in the Islamic Republic since the nuclear deal with world powers.
