Free Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe

BrocSoc's Clare Cowan writes:

My friend and former Brockley resident, Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, is in solitary confinement on unknown charges in an Iranian jail, separated from her 22-month baby and denied legal or Red Cross access.

I have known Nazanin for 10 years. She lodged with us for three years in Tyrwhitt Road from 2006 to 2009. Some of you knew her. She took part in the Hilly Fields Fayre. Her mother stayed with us during a visit. We went to her wedding in 2009. I was at her ceremony for British Citizenship. Her 22-month-old daughter has British Citizenship and her husband Richard is British.

I am hoping you will sign and spread the petition, which has already reached 21,000. Her husband has now been advised that maximum publicity is vital to win her release. Whatever charges the Iranian government may claim they have against her, the treatment meted out to her and her daughter is absolutely indefensible.
