That this House expresses grave concern regarding the case of Ms Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, a British dual national, who is currently arbitrarily detained in Iran; is worried for the health and safety of Ms Zaghari-Ratcliffe, who at times has been kept in solitary confinement and has been kept from seeing her now three-year-old daughter; supports the UN statement calling for the immediate and unconditional release of Ms Zaghari-Ratcliffe and other British-Iranian dual nationals arbitrarily detained in Iran; urges the Government to publicly call for the immediate release of Ms Zaghari-Ratcliffe; calls on the Government to ensure that Ms Zaghari-Ratcliffe’s case is raised in all private discussions with the Iranian authorities, to ensure consular access and secure her release; further urges the Government to take a more proactive approach to identifying and intervening in cases where British nationals face human rights violations; and calls on the Government to state that in all cases involving British nationals imprisoned abroad, any threat of or actual torture and mistreatment will not be tolerated and will be publicly condemned by the Government.

This motion has been signed by a total of 33 MPs.
