Monday, the lawyer of the British-Iranian aid worker Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe was sentenced to one year in prison by Iran, only a one month after she had completed a five year prison sentence, for allegedly plotting to overthrow the regime in Tehran.
Nazanin-Ratcliffe, a project manager at Thomson Reuters Foundation, denies all charges.
Additionally, the court banned her from leaving Iran for one year.
The new sentence was given to Zaghari-Ratcliffe "on charges of propaganda against the regime," according to the news website 'Emtedad', who quoted her lawyer, Hojjat Kermani.
However, Kermani stated that she will be appealing the one-year sentence.
Zaghari-Ratcliffe completed her five year sentence last month.
She was arrested in an Iranian airport April 2016, following a trip to visit her family.
