The fiancé of Cassandra Sainsbury has addressed the media for the first time since her arrest in Colombia.
Scott Broadbridge held a press conference alongside his lawyer in Adelaide on Friday morning, insisting that his wife-to-be is innocent.
“I would just like to say that I have no doubt that Cassie is innocent of these charges and I will support her no matter how long this takes,” Mr Broadbridge told reporters.

“Cass and I are engaged to be married and I intend to marry her.
“Cass is the delight of my life. I know that she is not involved in the drug trade and know that she was not carrying drugs anywhere.
“I know that there are many unanswered questions in this case and I intend to work with the lawyers to get to the bottom of it.
“It is extremely stressful for her, but we are able to talk almost every day and that is a great comfort to both of us.
“She is concerned about the conditions of the jail which are not ideal.
“I hope to be able to get over there soon and I hope that we are able to prove her innocence.”
Mr Brodbridge ended the conference by asking the media to “stop harassing” him and his grandmother.
“Finally I would like to ask the media to not camp outside my house and not harass me. I would also ask that you would stop harassing my grandmother.”
