In comments aired by CNN-affiliate Sky News Australia on Tuesday, Kylie Moore-Gilbert also criticized the Australian government’s attempts at using “quiet diplomacy” to free her. She said she suffered “psychological torture” while jailed in Iran and claims Tehran tried to recruit her as a spy.
Moore-Gilbert, a lecturer in Islamic Studies at the University of Melbourne, was held for two years from September 2018 after being arrested at a Tehran airport and accused of spying amid tensions between Iran and the United States.
She said while she was held, the Iranian authorities also told her they would free her if she agreed to spy for them.
