Iranian-Briton to Go on Hunger Strike: Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe - TNBC UK

A British-Iranian mother holds back in Tehran is due to start a three-day long hunger strike for protesting against being refused specialist medical care. Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe was imprisoned for five years in 2016 after being accused of spying which she refuses. Her husband, Richard Ratcliffe told the prison officials have declined to let her see a doctor to check limps in her breast and other health issues.

According to him, it was expected the hunger strike would get them to take her “seriously”. Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt has admired her courage and condemned Iran for -in his words allocating an innocent mother to feel she needs to retreat to a hunger strike.

Mentioning to the Observer, Mr. Radcliffe told, “ We know a hunger strike has significant physical consequences the longer it goes on for, and Nazanin is feeling a strong sense of trepidation”. The charity worker, Mrs. Zaghari-Ratcliffe will ponder the extending hunger strike if her demands to observe a doctor are not met, according to Mr. Ratcliffe.

He said his wife was going through a medical treatment chocked for checking lumps in her breasts, neurological care over her pains in neck and insensibility in her arms and legs, as we as for checking an outside psychiatrist.

In Northern West of London at Hampstead, Mrs. Zaghari-Ratcliffe spent her 40th birthday on the Boxing Day in prison, where she has been delayed for mere than 1,000 days. Her four-year-old daughter, Gabriella has been living with family in Iran since she was delayed.

Her husband has escalated a high-profile campaign for the release of his wife along with Prime Minister Theresa May, the Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt and London Mayor Sadiq Khan all calling for her to be freed. Mrs. Zaghari-Ratcliffe was imprisoned at the Tehran airport in April in 2016 after visiting her family on holiday.
