Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, the British-Iranian woman imprisoned in Tehran, is likely to be convicted on new charges of "spreading propaganda" against the Iranian regime, her husband said on Monday.
The 39 year old has been accused of spreading propaganda, which her Husband says she denies.
"The judge told Nazanin to expect that likely there will be another conviction and sentence against her", he said.
"Nazanin was allowed to contact the British ambassador for the first time and asked that he issues a formal diplomatic note protesting against the new charges".
During her latest court appearance, Mrs Zaghari-Ratcliffe reportedly pleaded for clemency, begging the judge to allow her to return to the United Kingdom and resume her family life.
She also asked that the United Kingdom government file a formal diplomatic note protesting against the new charge against her, the Free Nazanin Campaign statement said. She hasn't seen her father for over two years now.
She told the court: 'This year I am turning 40.
During the hearing on Saturday, Mrs Zaghari-Ratcliffe is quoted as saying: "I have never been involved in overthrowing the regime".
During her conversation with Macaire, she pleaded that he and the UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson visit her in prison.
Asked whether he thought his wife was getting caught up in the global row and was useful to the Iranians, Mr Ratcliffe admitted his wife's case had been political for a long time.
Zaghari-Ratcliffe, who was arrested in 2016 and jailed for five years for spying against the regime, appeared in court on Saturday to face the charges.
Mr Ratcliffe said: 'The UK needs to do better by British Iranians - at the moment it is failing to protect them.
He said Zaghari-Ratcliffe also told the judge she believed her case was related to a sum of money the United Kingdom government owes to Tehran in connection with a four-decade legal dispute over hundreds of Chieftain tanks Iran bought from the United Kingdom in 1976.
She was arrested in April 2016 at a Tehran airport when she and her then 22-month-old daughter, Gabriella, were about to return to the United Kingdom after a family visit.
The prime minister's official spokesman said: "The UK government remains committed to doing everything possible to help secure Ms Zaghari-Ratcliffe's release and alleviate her suffering".
"This is yet another body blow for Nazanin."
Ms Moscogiuri said: "Nazanin has already been subjected to a blatantly unfair trial and sentence, and a string of unfounded accusations in the Iranian media".
They said her work for charities that train journalists has been used against her even though she has not trained journalists herself.
