Richard Ratcliffe accuses UK government of ‘gaslighting’ over wife’s Iran imprisonment

Richard Ratcliffe has been on hunger strike for 20 days, protesting his wife’s imprisonment in Iran.

The Iranian-British Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe was detained in 2016 on espionage charges, which she denies. Her husband maintains she was jailed over a debt owed by the UK to Iran.
