Iran says jailed UK-Australian academic ‘in perfect health’

Tehran A British-Australian academic jailed in Iran is in “perfect health” and is going to meet Canberra’s envoy in Tehran next week, state news agency IRNA reported.
Kylie Moore-Gilbert “is in perfect health and based on previous agreements, the Australian ambassador will meet her next week,” the agency said on late Wednesday, quoting a statement from the Tehran prisons organisation.
The statement denied a recent report from British newspaper The Guardian that Moore-Gilbert was physically ill and said the scheduled meeting with the envoy “was proof of the report being false”.
A diplomatic source on Thursday confirmed to AFP in Tehran that a meeting at Qarchak prison southeast of the capital had been agreed for next week. (AFP)
