To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what recent representations he has made to his Iranian counterpart on the physical wellbeing of (a) Nazanin Zaghari Ratcliffe and (b) other UK dual nationals detained in Iranian jails since the outbreak of covid-19 in detention centres in that country.
We are concerned about reports of the presence of coronavirus in Evin prison. Our Ambassador to Iran has consistently raised this with the Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and alongside France and Germany we have offered Iran a package of both material and financial support to combat the rapid spread of the disease. We call on the Iranian Government to immediately allow health professionals into Evin prison to assess the situation of British-Iranian dual nationals there. The welfare of all British nationals imprisoned in Iran remains our top priority.
