Middle East and North Africa

Dual national British-Iranian development worker Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe was arrested by Iran’s Revolutionary Guards in 2016 on a visit to her parents. She was convicted of plotting to overthrow Iran’s clerical establishment, apparently due to her role as a project manager for Thomson Reuters Foundation, a charity that operates independently of Thomson Reuters and its news subsidiary Reuters. Nazanin and the Foundation consistently denied the charge.
