Covid-19 and Iran’s imprisoned dual and foreign nationals

At least 10 dual and foreign nationals or Iranian citizens are known to be imprisoned in Iran as of April 2020, according to research by the US-based Center for Human Rights in Iran. Despite the fact that many of them have serious health issues only two – Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe and Aras Amiri – were temporarily released when Iran furloughed more than 100,000 prisoners out of concern for Covid-19.
