London: Naomi Campbell feels that she was used as a scapegoat in the blood diamond trial of former Liberian President Charles Taylor in Hague.

Her comments, in an interview, came as she celebrated 25 years working in the fashion business.

"What you have to understand is, I was not on trial. I was forced by subpoena to testify,” Sky News quoted her as telling at the London Fashion Week celebrity bash.

"It was nothing to do with me. This trial has been going on for how many years and no-one cared to write about it?

"You bring Naomi Campbell to the stand and the whole world knows. So as far as I was concerned, I was used as a scapegoat," she added.
