Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe latest: Authorities in Iran cancel jailed Brit mum’s weekly call with husband after announcement of planned hunger strike
The British-Iranian mother jailed in Tehran is set to start the three-day strike mid-January after being refused access to medical help.
On Sunday, organisation Free Nazanin said Iranian authorities have cancelled Mrs Zaghari-Ratcliffe‘s scheduled call with her husband Richard Ratcliffe and imposed restrictions on all other calls.
Mr Ratcliffe said last week she was to embark on a hunger strike with Narges Mohammadi, an Iranian human rights defender who is also behind bars in Evin prison.
Mrs Zaghari-Ratcliffe has suffered a catalogue of mental and physical health complaints since she was arrested at Tehran’s Imam Khomeini airport on April 3 2016.
Mr Ratcliffe said his wife was having medical treatment blocked for checking lumps in her breasts, neurological care over her neck pains and numbness in her arms and legs, and for seeing an outside psychiatrist.
He said her requests for treatment were being blocked “despite having been approved by the prison doctor“.
If the pair are not granted the specialist care they seek, they will continue to refuse food, they said in a joint letter, warning Iran’s authorities that they will be held responsible for the potential consequences.
