Re­ject­ing the Claims

Iran News - - DOMESTIC -

IRNA* - A source from Iran Em­bassy in Lon­don dis­missed claims made by Richard Rat­cliff that her wife’s sen­tence could be ex­tend to 16 years by Tehran.

The un­named source added that it is not the first time Mr. Rat­cliff tries to in­trigue pub­lic opin­ion and make pro­pa­ganda based on false in­for­ma­tion.

He went on to say, “The truth is Mrs. Zaghari has at­tended a court hear­ing and based on new in­for­ma­tion made avail­able to the judge, she has been charged for her il­le­gal acts. “

The source said that the is­sues raised in the court are charges, which have to pass le­gal pro­ceed­ings and be proven.

It is clear that Mrs. Zaghari is, like be­fore, en­ti­tled to her le­gal rights in­clud­ing hav­ing a lawyer as well as le­gal pro­ce­dures for is­su­ing a ver­dict and in that case, she en­joys the right to ap­peal.

The sources stressed that the claims made by Mrs. Zaghari’s hus­band (Mr. Rat­cliff) re­gard­ing her new charges are “just spec­u­la­tions” which do not cor­re­spond to the charges made against her.

He re­it­er­ated that Mrs. Zaghari’s con­di­tion in prison has not changed and she can visit her fam­ily as well as her daugh­ter twice a week.
