star this property answer text <p>Ahead of the Foreign Secretary’s visit to Tehran in November 2018, a request was made for a meeting with Mrs Zaghari-Ratcliffe. Iran continues to deny consular access, as it does not recognise dual nationality. Nonetheless, we continue to request it. During our visits to Tehran, the Foreign Secretary and I underlined our deep concern about the treatment of Mrs Zaghari-Ratcliffe and other British-Iranian dual nationals detained in Iran, and reiterated our request for their release.</p> more like this

These cases have raised serious issues about due process and transparency of justice in China. We urge the authorities to release those detained for the peaceful and constitutionally-protected expression of their views.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The British Government has taken regular action bilaterally and multilaterally in cases involving detained human rights lawyers and activists, including the case of Wang Quanzhang. This has included raising our concerns about lawyers and activists at China’s Universal Periodic Review in November 2018, and at the last UK/China Human Rights Dialogue. Moreover, the Minister of Asia and the Pacific raised Wang Quanzhang’s case with the Chinese Government during his visit last July. The Foreign Secretary raised Wang Quanzhang’s case last July, when he met Chinese State Councillor Wang Yi; he also met with family members of detained human rights lawyers. Additionally, the Foreign Secretary released a statement on 29 January 2019, which expressed concern over the sentencing of Wang Quanzhang, and urged the Chinese government to ensure fundamental civil and political rights are protected, in line with China’s constitution and its international commitments.</p><p>​</p> more like this
