MANY people in Warrington will have read in the national papers about the plight of the British charity worker Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe.

They and many others will be extremely disappointed that she has been sent back to jail in Iran after her recent temporary release. Mothers of young children will understand the anguish she is going through.

Along with her husband Richard we all hoped her long awaited release was just around the corner.

In total, she has spent nearly two-and-a-half years behind bars, including eight gruelling months of solitary confinement without access to a lawyer.

She was subjected to a string of unfounded accusations from the Iranian authorities and was given a deeply unfair trial.

News that Nazanin has suffered panic attacks after returning to jail and now needs specialised medical care, is extremely worrying.

Nazanin is a prisoner of conscience who should never have been jailed in the first place let alone treated with such exceptional cruelty.

Readers can add their name to the petition calling for her release at nazanin.

Let’s do all we can to get Nazanin home.
