British-Iranian aid worker Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe was sentenced to a further one-year jail term in Iran on Monday, on charges of "propaganda activities against the regime" in Iran. The UK-Iranian national is also banned from leaving the country for one year for participating in a protest in front of the Iranian Embassy in London in 2009.
The move drew condemnation from Prime Minister Boris Johnson who said she should not be returned to prison.
"I don't think it's right at all that Nazanin should be sentenced to any more time in jail," Mr Johnson said following news that the 42-year-old mother had been convicted for a second time.
He added in a tweet that she must be allowed to return home.
