VIDEO: Beauty queen burned in police raid speaks out

THE former beauty queen who sustained severe burns after a flash grenade exploded during a police raid at Susan River has spoken out.

Felicia Djamirze appeared on A Current Affair last night speaking for the first time since the raid about two weeks ago.

Ms Djamirze hands and face were severely burnt during the raid.

Police have charged Ms Djamirze with drug trafficking.

Her fiancé Dean Grant O'Donnell, who owns the Susan River home, has been charged with drug trafficking and 12 other charges.

Police allege they found 2kg of methyl amphetamine, or ice, at the home along with seven firearms including a loaded handgun.

"I thought I was going to die," Ms Djamirze said in the interview.

"I have never in my life experienced so much pain."

Former beauty queen Felicia Djamirze received burns to her hands and face during a police raid at Susan River in February.

Throughout the interview Ms Djamirze appears tearful, and at times struggled to speak.

She wore a hospital gown and her blonde hair was covered with a grey scarf.

Ms Djamirze said she did not know whether she would have full use of her right hand or full vision in her right eye.

The former Miss Australia International and Miss Tourism Australia protested her innocence during the interview.

"I have nothing to hide," she said.

"I am innocent. I will be pleading not guilty."

Ms Djamirze said she did not know drugs were on the property.

But, police allege surveillance captured show Ms Djamirze talking openly about drugs with O'Donnell.

Ms Djamize will appear in Hervey Bay Magistrates Court on March 3.
