She said she was kept handcuffed to a dresser and was told she would be sold as a sex slave in an online auction.

Chloe Ayling broke down after the shoe store witness's statement was disclosed to her, admitting that she doesn't have a "reasonable explanation" for the shopping trip with her captor, but that she agreed to go on a shopping trip because she thought it might be a possible way to escape. The unnamed woman, who was allegedly drugged, assaulted and held captive in a suitcase, has since been released and a suspect arrested in the case.

Milan: The inside of the house in Italy where police say the kidnapped British model was held. He also asked the media to allow Ayling to spend some time to recuperate from her traumatic experience.

"She was told that she was going to be sold to somebody in the Middle East for sex", he told Radio 4.

Green said Italian police held Ayling's passport and wouldn't let leave the country until she gave evidence at a pre-trial hearing and visited the crime scene with detectives last week.

Her kidnappers reportedly sought to sell her online as a sex slave for US$300,000, (S$415,100), according to the police.

Italian police said yesterday they still believed Ms Ayling and were continuing to investigate.

According to the statements that Ayling revealed to the authorities, she arrived in Milan, Italy on July 10 for a photography job that was booked through her agent.

On Sunday - nearly three weeks after she says she was released - Ayling returned to Britain.

The lawyer, Francesco Pesce, said his client had been threatened with death throughout the ordeal and decided it was better to cooperate with Herba.

Model Chloe Ayling, who was kidnapped by the mysterious Black Death gang, has signed for an A-list celebrity agency. She has appeared in British tabloids and worked around Europe.

Ayling's agent, Carla Bellucci, said it was "hard" to answer whether she has any doubts about the model's alleged kidnapping in Milan after revealing the 20-year-old did a topless Page 3 photoshoot on Tuesday as a way of "coping" with the trauma.

He said he called the model's hotel, pretending to be the photographer hired to work with her, to say his equipment had been stolen. The following day Herba, a Polish citizen with British residency, was arrested.

He told investigators that the Romanians hired him to rent properties around Europe to store garments they meant to sell.

The Milan investigators expressed incredulity at the 500,000 pounds ($649,000) Herba said he was paid to rent the properties. Authorities said they were searching for at least one other person related to the woman's abduction.

The suspect also claimed he did not participate in Ayling's kidnapping. "He told her he wanted to release her somehow and some time". He said she was free to go once the Romanians had abandoned the farmhouse, but that she stayed.

According to police, Herba and Ayling's accounts of what transpired were different. "I've feared for my life, second by second, minute by minute, hour by hour", she said. Ayling had also met Herba previously, when they had both been caught up in a terrorist shooting in Paris in April. "We also can not find any trace of the agency that allegedly lured her to the country for the photoshoot"'.
