Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe’s anxious wait over whether she will be pardoned is set to continue after her family hoped they were on “the cusp of potentially good news”.

A decision on whether to grant the jailed British-Iranian mother-of-one clemency was due to come on Wednesday, but her lawyer was kept waiting for hours and sent home with no news, the Free Nazanin campaign said.

The campaign said in a statement: “Nazanin’s lawyer went today to the Prosecutor’s Office as requested for a decision on Nazanin’s clemency.

“He was required to wait for a few hours. Eventually he was told that there was no news for him, but someone would call the family to update on the decision.

“Nazanin is required to call the Prosecutor’s Office every Saturday, so we hope to get an update then if no call comes in the meantime.”

Mrs Zaghari-Ratcliffe was freed from Evin prison in Tehran on March 17 as part of the Iranian response to the Covid-19 pandemic, and her temporary release was further extended last week pending the decision.

On Tuesday, her husband Richard Ratcliffe had said “”We are on the cusp of potentially good news.”
