LONDON (Reuters] – Nazanin Zaghari Rahcliffe, a British-Iranian aid worker, said Monday that she shouldn’t have been in Iran for six more years. She also questioned the reason Britain hadn’t returned her last week.

Following six years of being held in Tehran, Zaghari Ratcliffe was released and brought to Britain.

After London had resolved a separate issue, she was allowed to return to Britain. She was due to repay a debt of 400 million pounds ($526million) for Iranian military tanks purchased in 1979.

Richard Zaghari Ratcliffe, Zaghari’s husband, thanked the British government and brought his wife home. She said that she was unable to agree.

She said that “what’s happening now should have occurred six years ago,” at a press conference held in Westminster by the House of Commons. It shouldn’t happen six years ago.

On April 3, 2016, Revolutionary Guards detained Zaghari Ratcliffe at Tehran Airport. She was trying to travel back to Britain with Gabriella, her 22-month old daughter.

The family of her boss and her parents, Thomson Reuters (NYSE:) Foundation has denied that she was charged. Thomson Reuters Foundation, a nonprofit that is independent of Thomson Reuters’ news subsidiary Reuters, operates the Thomson Reuters Foundation.
