The British-Iranian dual national is still in house arrest and is waiting on the date of a second trial. The Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps, IRGC, came to her house and falsely accused her of breaking the tag that was fitted to monitor her movement. She was warned she may be taken back to the revolutionary courts for breaking the terms of her house arrest.
At 7am her family landline phone rang saying she breached her conditions of release and officers would come to see her.
An unnamed individual then called round to the house where Mrs Zaghari-Ratcliffe is being held.
The family refused to allow the individual into their house as they recognised him as one of the IRGC officers.
The IRGC took the British national to court to face a second set of charges two weeks ago.
Mrs Zaghari-Ratcliffe complained that only the tagging centre and not the IRGC has the authority to monitor her movements.
She was determined to not be intimidated by the IRGC individual.
She said in the report the judiciary was required to talk to the IRGC, and not her.
Mrs Zaghari-Ratcliffe urged the Tehran deputy prosecutor Amin Waziri to contact her directly instead of through the IRGC.
The office of Amin Waziri said they would meet her to discuss her case.
Mrs Zaghari-Ratcliffe said she wanted to attend with her lawyer.
She wanted to be taken to the prosecutor’s office accompanied by prison guards and not the IRGC.
She said the IRGC had no jurisdiction.
