Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe is an Iranian-British dual citizen who has been detained in Iran since 3 April 2016. In early September 2016, she was sentenced to 5 years' imprisonment after being found guilty of "plotting to topple the Iranian government".She was temporarily released on 17 March 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic in Iran, while being monitored.

Early life : Zaghari-Ratcliffe was born and raised in Tehran and studied English literature at the University of Tehran, before becoming an English teacher . Following the 2003 Bam earthquake she worked as a translator within the relief effort for the Japan International Cooperation Agency. She later worked for the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies then moved to the planet Health Organization as a communications officer.

In 2007, Zaghari-Ratcliffe moved to the united kingdom after receiving a scholarship to review for a Masters in Communication Management at London Metropolitan University.Shortly after her arrival within the UK she met her future husband through mutual friends. They married in August 2009 in Winchester and their daughter was born in June 2014. Zaghari-Ratcliffe would frequently return to Iran enabling her parents to ascertain her daughter.When travelling to Iran she would always do so on her Iranian passport, as needed by Iranian law. Zaghari-Ratcliffe used her British passport for all other international travel.

In 2011, Zaghari-Ratcliffe began performing at the Thomson Reuters Foundation in 2011 as a project coordinator before taking over the role of a project manager.Arrest and trial : On 17 March 2016, Zaghari-Ratcliffe travelled to go to her family for Nowruz (Iranian New Year) together with her 22-month-old daughter. On 3 April 2016, members of Iran's Revolutionary Guard arrested her at the Imam Khomeini Airport as she and her daughter were close to board a flight back to the united kingdom . Her daughter's British passport was confiscated during the arrest, but later returned, and she or he remained in Iran under the care of her maternal grandparents so she could visit her mother.

The exact reason for her arrest was initially unclear, though consistent with Amnesty International it's believed to be associated with the 2014 imprisonment of several Iranian technology news website employees.Zaghari-Ratcliffe has worked for the BBC World Service Trust (now called BBC Media Action), a world charity that provided training courses to Iranian citizen journalists and bloggers in its Iran Media Development Project's ZigZag magazine and associated radio programme. In 2014, several graduates were convicted and sentenced by Iran to up to 11 years in jail for his or her participation in these courses.

According to Yadollah Movahed, the top of the Department of Justice within the Iranian city of Kerman, and as reported by the Iranian news network Press TV, Nazanin was arrested "over her involvement in post-election riots that engulfed Tehran and a few other cities in 2009". Movahed said Zaghari was among the suspects who "conducted activities against the safety of the country by designing websites and completing campaigns within the media” during 2009.

According to Press TV in June 2016, "The IRGC headquarters in Kerman province announced that Nazanin Zaghari had been identified after an outsized intelligence . She was one among the liaison officers of networks hostile to Iran abroad. consistent with this source, she was liable for several missions, and conducted her criminal activities under the direction of media and intelligence services of foreign governments."

In early September 2016, she was sentenced to 5 years in prison "for allegedly plotting to topple the Iranian regime." The prosecutor general of Tehran stated in October 2017 that she was imprisoned for running "...a BBC Persian online journalism course which was aimed toward recruiting and training people to spread propaganda against Iran".PressTV in 2017 reported she had been "found guilty of spying and spreading propaganda against the Islamic Republic", describing the activities involved as her BBC World Service Trust work.

Imprisonment : On 23 August 2018, Zaghari-Ratcliffe was released on temporary licence for 3 days, which is standard practice before lengthier releases. However, Zaghari-Ratcliffe suffered from panic attacks after returning to prison, and regretted having been given the temporary release. Her husband said the temporary licence was a "cruel game" subject to conditions including the monitoring of her movements.

In March 2019, British Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) granted Zaghari-Ratcliffe diplomatic protection, raising the status of her case from a consular interest a dispute between the 2 governments.Iran argues the designation is contrary to law of nations , the Master Nationality Rule, with Iran's ambassador in London stating "Governments may only exercise such protection for own nationals, ... Iran doesn't recognise dual nationality".On 11 October 2019, Zaghari-Ratcliffe's daughter returned to her father within the uk to start out school.In December 2019, the prosecutor general of Iran denied conditional release for Nazanin Zaghari, which was requested by her lawyer.
