Husband of Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe calls on Boris Johnson to 'take responsibility'

The husband of a British-Iranian woman jailed in Iran has called on Prime Minister Boris Johnson to “take responsibility” and help get her home. Charity worker Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe was arrested in April 2016 and sentenced to five years in jail, after being accused of spying, which she vehemently denies. Her husband Richard, 44, and their five-year-old daughter Gabriella, were joined by about 40 people outside Downing Street in London on Tuesday, to sing Christmas carols as part of the campaign calling for her release. Those taking part held placards reading “Boris please help free Nazanin”, while a giant Christmas card addressed to Mr Johnson was filled with messages urging him to take action.
