move friday: It means Britain no longer regards her case as simply a consular matter and raises it to the level of a legal dispute between Britain and Iran, according to CTV. The move was rejected as a violation of international law by Iran's ambassador to Britain, who said his country does not regard Zaghari-Ratcliffe as British. The Foreign Office said Friday the move means Britain formally asserts that Iran has failed to meet its international obligations in its treatment of Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe.
