In the statement, she said in part: "In the past two month’s I have been served with letters from his attorneys to remove my tweets. A protection order was then applied for against me along with an interim order demanding that I delete my tweets and effectively attempting to silence me just after I found my voice to speak about my experiences. This culminated in an arrest warrant being issued against me and my subsequent imprisonment." 

She further explained that it has been difficult dealing with the trauma and she has been battling to find the courage and support to speak up.

"I too, have finally found the strength and courage to speak out and seek justice," she said.
