TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - The Iranian Foreign Ministry said on Monday that it will follow up on the case of Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, a British-Iranian woman jailed in Iran, for “humanitarian reasons”, but emphasized that the Iranian Judiciary acts as an independent body and is the ultimate decision-maker on the issue.

“It’s undeniable that Mrs. Zaghari’s issue was brought up by the British side during a visit to Tehran by UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson,” Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi said during a press conference on Monday.

Qassemi said the Foreign Ministry explained to the British side how legal cases are handled in Iran and that the Judiciary, due to separation of powers, acts as an independent branch in the Islamic Republic.
