Ratcliffe said his wife now faces new charges and the possibility of her sentence being extended by 16 years. Ratcliffe said in a statement that his wife appeared in court on Sunday, Oct. 8, 2017, at Tehran’s Evin prison and that the new charges would prevent her from seeking early release next month as allowed by Iranian law.
