‘Bay­watch’ star wants As­sange brought home

The National - News - - NEWS | WORLD -

Aus­tralia’s prime min­is­ter told former Bay­watch star Pamela Anderson that Canberra will not in­ter­vene to bring her friend, Wik­iLeaks founder Ju­lian As­sange, back home to pre­vent his ex­tra­di­tion to the United States. The Aus­tralian, 48, is in jail in Lon­don for jump­ing bail and avoid­ing ex­tra­di­tion to Swe­den by flee­ing to the Ecuado­ran em­bassy, where he lived for seven years. He now again faces ex­tra­di­tion, this time to the US on charges of vi­o­lat­ing the Es­pi­onage Act. Ms Anderson had writ­ten to Aus­tralian Prime Min­is­ter Scott Mor­ri­son warn­ing that As­sange was un­der in­tense psy­cho­log­i­cal pres­sure at the high-se­cu­rity jail where he is be­ing held.
