In the first detailed interview she has granted since her release from Evin prison and her arrival in the US, Roxana Saberi gave a very detailed and scripted account of her ordeal having been charged initiallly for being in possession of wine to finally being charged with espionage. She openly describes how the governement agents told her what to say in order to secure her freedom and how her conscience resulted in recanting the confessions she made under emotional duress.
Ms. Saberi, who was kept under both solitary confinement and with other prisoners, describes the emotional transition she made and ultimately relied on what she refers to as “the God that I had felt before had abandoned me”.
The power of faith is what sustained her and gives me a glimpse of what indeed is sustaining the cell-mates she references in her interview.
