Iran TV airs new footage of jailed UK-Iranian detainee
The footage, aired on Wednesday and seemingly recorded on a smartphone, shows Zaghari-Ratcliffe being approached in April 2016 by security agents at Imam Khomeini Airport, who take her passport and start questioning her. It was shown as part of a multi-series documentary on "enemies' interference in domestic affairs," the Judiciary's news agency Mizan reported. "I am the prosecutor's representative and have a warrant for your arrest," says a voice off the camera, as she looks concerned.
The documentary, titled "Out of Sight" was first aired on Ofogh TV channel. The channel was launched on June 3, 2014 and started with "analytical programmes" on the Iranian revolution and the Iranian-Islamic lifestyle, according to its manager Mohsen Naji, semi-official news agency Mehr reported. It has since moved toward entertainment programmes and documentaries.
