irani releasedAn Iranian citizen who was recently released from US prison says she was "in all ways tortured” during her time in US detention, Press TV reports.

“They put me in prison; the first 18 months were horrible because I was in all ways tortured. Physically, not beating me but keeping me for 18 hours in a freezing cell all in chains, chains around my waist and my hands and my feet. And they always put the chains and handcuffs in a way that my skin would come off,” Shahrzad Mir-Qolikhan told Press TV after her arrival in Tehran from Oman on Sunday night.

She added that, “They [US officials] were just appointing US public attorneys. However, they told me to start with, I had to pay the first attorney USD 20,000. He was a public attorney.”

Iran's Ambassador to Oman Hossein Noushabadi said on Friday that Iran has filed lawsuit with international courts and human rights organizations for the abuse of Mir-Qolikhan’s rights and has even submitted a request for redress.

Mir-Qolikhan arrived in the Oman’s capital city of Muscat On August 7. She was reunited with her twin daughters and her mother after five years in US detention.

Mir-Qolikhan had been arrested in the US in December 2007, after being forced to return to the States from a vacation in Cyprus.

She was detained and sentenced to five years in prison by a Florida federal court though she consistently denied any wrongdoing.
