LONDON - Iran has told jailed Iranian-British aid worker Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe that she will appear in court next month accused of spreading propaganda, her husband, Richard, said on Thursday.

"She's been told she will appear in court on Decenber 10," he told Reuters. He said that he understood she would appear in court, charged with spreading propaganda.

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, a project manager with the Thomson Reuters Foundation, was sentenced to five years after being convicted by an Iranian court of plotting to overthrow the clerical establishment. She denies the charges.

Zaghari-Ratcliffe's fate become a major political issue in Britain after Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson made remarks on November 1 that appeared to cast doubt on statements from her employer about what she had been doing in Iran.
