Watch: US Marine Speaks for First Time After Release from Iranian Prison
January 20, 2016
In the video below, U.S. Marine veteran Amir Hekmati, who was jailed in Iran and released over the weekend in a prisoner swap, spoke out yesterday about his time being jailed in a notoriously dangerous Iranian prison for four years.
The Marine said he endured "inhumane and unjust" treatment while being held in Iran's Evin prison. He said that, at a later date, he would elaborate on this at a later time.
Hekmati also said when he learned of all the U.S. Marines supporting him it gave him the strength to get through the "very difficult times."
"Semper Fi to all the Marines out there," he declared.
