London, Mar. 30 – The following is the text of a third letter allegedly written by Faye Turney, one of 15 British sailors capture by Iran and being held at an undisclosed location. The letter, which is addressed to the British people, was released to the media by Iranian officials on Friday.

BEGINS

To British People

I am writing to you as a British service person who has been sent to Iraq, sacrificed due to the intervening policies of the Bush and Blair governments.

We were arrested after entering Iranian waters by the Iranian forces. For this, I am deeply sorry. I understand that this has caused even more distrust for the people of Iran and the whole area in the British (sic).

The Iranian people have treated me well and have proved themselves to be caring, compassionate, hospitable and friendly. For this I am thankful.

I believe that for our countries to move forward we need to start withdrawing our forces from Iraq and leave the people of Iraq to start re-building their lives. I have written a letter to the people of Iran apologising for our actions.

Whereas we hear and see on the news the way prisoners were treated in Abo-Ghrayb (sic) and other Iraqi jails by British and American personnel, I have received total respect and faced no harm.

It is now our time to ask our government to make a change to its oppressive behaviour towards other people.

Faye Turney, 27/03/07
