Pamela Anderson gave a live interview on Good Morning Britain today (April 17).
She talked about the welfare of her close friend Julian Assange, who has been living at the Ecuadorian embassy in London since 2012 amid fears he will be arrested and extradited to the US if he leaves.
During the chat, Susanna Reid suggested that some think the WikiLeaks founder deserves to face justice.
“He’s awful,” Pamela said of Julian’s condition, explaining that his internet access has been cut off. “He’s a political prisoner in the heart of London – it’s very surprising. Cut off from everyone. Nobody can visit him now. His lawyers possibly.
“I’m very concerned about his health. I think this is a form of torture. I’m very, very, deeply concerned. He’s one of the most important people on the planet right now. He’s exposing all these war crimes and all these truths. We need him at this moment and it’s not a coincidence that he is being silenced at this time.” “Theresa May needs to do something. The UK is being so stupid. They need to make a decision. They keep passing the buck. They want to extradite him to the US – and that would be life in prison or worse. Someone needs to do something before something happens to him.
“It’s inhumane, it’s a human rights situation – he’s being abused.”
Susanna then chipped in: “There are plenty of people that think that he should face…”
Pamela then immediately shut down the presenter’s counter argument and hit back in shock: “Abuse?!”
Susanna explained she was referring to justice, Pamela still wasn’t impressed.
“[Justice] for what though? For telling the truth and exposing war crimes? He’s not the culprit, he’s the messenger! You should know, you journalists!”
