Lisa Nandy – 2021 Comments on the Sentencing of Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe

The comments made by Lisa Nandy, the Shadow Foreign Secretary, on 26 April 2021.

This is absolutely devastating news. For more than five years, Nazanin’s freedom has been used as a political bargaining chip that has resulted in an unimaginable ordeal for her and her family.

The UK government has serious questions to answer over their failed strategy to bring her home and the Foreign Secretary must come to Parliament to explain what actions he will take to ensure Nazanin is returned home to her family.
