london - Great Britain is preparing to transfer 400 million pounds (450 million euros) to Iran. According to The Telegraph, this transaction would have to do with a British-Iranian woman who has been detained in Iran for a year and a half on suspicion of espionage.
The British aid worker has been imprisoned since April last year on suspicion of espionage, a denunciation she herself denies. The 37-year-old Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe was visiting family in Iran when she was arrested at the airport and, according to her husband, in a remote place was put in solitary confinement, without a lawyer but with health complaints.
Boris Johnson, the secretary of state, did not make things better recently by saying that the woman was in Iran 'to train journalists.' With that she ran the risk that her conviction for five years of cell would be doubled. The minister has apologized to the angry family after some time. ' And of course I pull in every suggestion that she was there for business. '' In addition, Johnson wants to travel to Tehran soon.
Behind the scenes, the last few months have been working hard on smoother relations with Iran, also because of the British-Iranian woman. The financial transaction should help. England still has to pay approximately 400 million pounds to Iran after long ago a weapon deal was fouled but the deposit had already been made.
