Judiciary will not surrender to foreigners: Baeidinejad
Tehran’s ambassador to the UK has emphasised that Iran's judiciary will never surrender to the pressure of foreigners.
Iran Press/Europe: In reaction to psychological warfare by some UK officials and media against Iran, in relation to the case of Nazanin Zaghari, Hamid Baeidinejad added that the judiciary system will never cave in to pressure from foreigners.
Hamid Baeidinejad also said that it is false to think that with media controversy, it is possible for foreign countries to pressure Iran to reach their goals, Iran Press reported.
He added that many of the allegations and accusations made by British authorities regarding the case of Nazanin Zaghari are based on ignorance and a lack of understanding of the laws of the Islamic Republic of Iran.
Iran’s intelligence authorities arrested Zaghari at Imam Khomeini International Airport in April 2016 on her way back to London. She was subsequently put on trial and handed a five-year jail term after being found guilty of spying and spreading propaganda against the Islamic Republic.
In November 2017, Iran’s Judiciary released documents to local media outlets challenging Western accounts that the Iranian national had merely traveled to Iran for a family visit.
As per the released documents, Zaghari had played a leading role in holding training courses for recruits at BBC World Service Trust and the ZigZag Academy.
