Since then the UK had been "intending" to comply with the ruling but felt constrained by US Treasury sanctions in particular. There is a school of thought that the arrest of Nazanin was to provide some leverage in this regard although personally I think that while it has been useful, there are other factors in play.
Well, there is something I never knew. Thanks.

Any source I can read about it ... ?

In the sense that Iran doesn't tend to comply with international norms of behaviour but I can't be sure it never complies with all agreements and conventions.

The article gives a slightly wrong impression of Britain's refusal to refund the money. After the Shah was deposed Iranian assets overseas were frozen by foreign governments and our own - to give the moeny back in that climate would have been flying in the face of our allies and our own policy but it wasn't us pursuing the main chance (although that's how it has been portrayed in Iran naturally). Agree about Boris.

I refer you to my previous answer but substituting "tend to" for "not sure".

Surely its better to show a bit of restraint when you can't be certain rather than to end a post with 'fact' or even worse 'close thread'. Unless you know for a fact that my aspersions are completely false?

Well if we ripped them off for 400m in the first place, it should have been paid back years ago.
