A British Council worker who was jailed for spying by Iran government, has been released and is now back to Britain after her travel ban was lifted.

Ms Amiri was arrested in March 2018 in Tehran while visiting her family and a year later an Iranian Revolutionary Court sentenced her to 10 years in prison on a conviction for spying. She was accused initially of leading the British “cultural infiltration” of Iran but she has repeatedly denied the charge of spying.

Aras Amiri who was earlier sentenced to 10 years in prison after being charged with spying by an Iranian court before being acquitted and allowed to leave, has now given hope to the family of Nazanin Zaghari Ratcliffe, the British-Iranian dual national jailed in 2016.
