The husband of Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe has said he's not confident Boris Johnson can secure his wife's release from prison in Iran.
Zaghari-Ratcliffe, a British-Iranian citizen, is currently in jail in her country of birth, having been found guilty of spying in a secret trial. She was arrested in April 2016 on a visit to Iran, but maintains she was only there to visit family.
Johnson is expected to travel to Iran this weekend to lobby for Zaghari-Ratcliffe's release, but husband Richard Ratcliffe sounded less than bullish when speaking to Julia Hartley-Brewer this morning.
Asked whether he was confident the Foreign Secretary's intervention would get his wife out of jail, Ratcliffe replied: "I'm not confident of anything."
"I'm confident that he's doing his best and I'm confident that will make a difference.
"Whether that will be enough to get her out...time will tell."
Ratcliffe also talked about his family's ordeal in a passionate interview on our mid-morning show.
