A MODEL has described being “locked up like an animal” in a Pakistani prison after £1 million in heroin was discovered in her bag.

Tereza Hluskova, 27, was detained at Lahore’s AIIama IqbaI International Airport on her way to Ireland via Dubai.

Customs officers discovered 8.5kg of heroin inside her suitcase, and the then-22-year-old was arrested and handcuffed.

She insisted she was visiting the country to work as a model and that the Class A drugs had been slipped into her luggage without her knowledge.

Tereza, on the other hand, was eventually convicted and sentenced to eight years and eight months in prison in January 2018.

The model was eventually released in 2022 after a series of appeals, having served only four years of her sentence.

She has now opened up about her ordeal in a Pakistani prison, detailing the “horrors she went through” and her fears that the police were “going to kill her.”

Tereza has shared a series of “no holds barred” videos online in which she explains how she survived being beaten and “humiliated” on a daily basis, according to the Daily Mail.

She claims she was “lured” to the country under the guise of a modelling job while working as a private escort.

Tereza said: “I thought they were going to kill me.

“I admire the person who comes out of prison and is completely fine.

“I still have it [the experience] inside me. Now and then I remember how they woke us up, how the girls beat us and how cold it was there.

“I had no medical help, I had to help myself, I was crying. ‘I’ll have it in me for the rest of my life.

“You could have had a headache or tuberculosis. The summer was quiet, hot as in a sauna, so I soon sweated out the flu.

“But in winter? I was not warmed by a blanket, nor a sweatshirt, nor hot tea. And on top of that a cold and a cough.

“Sometimes I close my eyes and feel what’s there again. How terrible we were.

“No family, locked up like animals, humiliation. And I try to shake such thoughts out of my head right away, but sometimes it doesn’t go away right away.”

In her hometown of Uherské Hradit, Czech Republic, the blonde dropped out of school and began working in a cafe, where she was offered a job as a sex worker.

As the “conditions seemed favourable”, she agreed and was flown to Belgium where she was taken “under the wing of a woman called Sara.”

Tereza said: “She first wanted to check whether I was suitable for the job.

To “cope” with her clients and “release her inhibitions and fear”, the model turned to drugs and alcohol and adopted the name Jennifer.

Sara, she claimed, plied her with substances, allowing her to “learn to shut down emotions during intimate moments with clients.”

Tereza continued: “I felt almost nothing at all. Maybe the problem was that I drank a lot.

“I had plum juice in one hand, vodka in the other, and in two hours I was lying there and they had to resuscitate me.

“A prostitute doesn’t enjoy sex, because in order to survive, she has to switch to robot mode and work.”

She described a few “brutal” encounters, but admitted her memory was hazy because she was “out of her mind” on drugs and alcohol.

Tereza claimed she was then taken to a Belgian bar where escorts met their clients while dressed in a black mini dress and high heels.

“I had a meeting there with a man named Ludo, all I knew was that he had red glasses and a moustache,” she recalled.

“When I reached for the doorknob, I thought I was going to throw up or run away. But I said no. I was already in it so I entered.”

Her job as an escort quickly turned nasty, with a brutal beating from a Turkish client who tried to suffocate her after sex.

Tereza claimed she sought “vengeance” by informing her pimp about what had occurred, adding, “I told the guys how he treated me, and then they gave him hell.”

She was then informed that she would be sent to the United Kingdom to do some erotic photo modelling and obtain a visa before flying to Pakistan.

She stayed in Manchester with a Pakistani man who was arranging her travel documents and informed her that she would be travelling to the country via France.

The model said: “Now I wonder how I could have been so stupid that there were such detours when it was supposed to be a direct flight from England to Pakistan. But I didn’t realize it at the time.”

When she arrived in the South Asian country, she was assigned to live in a house without electricity with her “keeper,” who accompanied her from France.

Tereza said: “It was a disaster. Dirt everywhere on the ground, not even sidewalks, but scattered dirt.”

She was taken to a “kind of field where there was only dirt” for a photoshoot and waited two months for the photos to be posted online, but they never did.

Tereza was finally told she could go home, and she thought her nightmare was over, not realising it had only just begun.

Customs officers apprehended her at the airport after discovering nearly 9kg of heroin hidden in “statues” in her suitcase as she attempted to board a flight to the United Arab Emirates.

Officers can be seen rummaging through her bags while the model breaks down in tears.

She told cops: “They gave me something for luggage, three statues or something. They said it was gifts.

“I didn’t know there was something inside.”

Tereza is now attempting to rebuild her life by finding work as a waitress and settling down with a new man.

She promised to continue sharing details of her terrifying experience in future videos as she attempts to cope with the ordeal.

“A person who has been in prison for four years has to get used to socialising again,” she added.

Pakistan and Afghanistan share a long porous border, which serves as a key drug-smuggling route to Central Asia, Europe, and North America.

Drug trafficking is a serious crime in Pakistan, and airport arrests are common.Tereza Hluskova Tereza Hluskova
