Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe.

This is shameful and humiliating – to the UK as a nation.

Here’s the story:

The Brit mum jailed in Iran over spying allegations will be hauled to court next month on a second charge of “spreading propaganda”.

Iranian authorities have told Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, 38, she will appear in court on 10 December.

She has been held by Tehran since April 2016 after being accused of spying – a charge she denies.

Richard Ratcliffe said she had now been told she would appear on a second charge of “spreading propaganda”.

The full details of the allegations against Mrs Zaghari-Ratcliffe have never been made fully public.

Speaking in Westminster on 1 November, UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson appeared to contradict her account when he said she had been training journalists there.

Four days later, Mrs Zaghari-Ratcliffe was recalled to court in Iran and his remark cited as evidence against her, prompting fears her five-year sentence could be extended.

And here’s an appropriate comment:

Agreed. It’s time for Mr Johnson to go.
