In a brief statement, she said she was focused on the future, which “is far more important than the past”.

She served seven years of a 35-year sentence for leaking hundreds of thousands of diplomatic cables and military files to Wikileaks.

Most of her sentence was commuted by then-US President Barack Obama in January.
