The “Baywatch” star has supported Assange for since he began living in the Ecuadorian embassy in London and visited him multiple times.
“J.A. is the [the world’s] most innocent man,” Anderson wrote. “He is treated as [the world’s] most dangerous man in order to make him a criminal. Without him ever having done anything whatever wrong.” (RELATED: Pamela Anderson Reacts On Twitter Over Julian Assange’s Arrest)
“He does not deserve to be in a supermax prison,” Anderson told The Sun after her visit. “He has never committed a violent act. He is an innocent person.”

Assange was sentenced to 50 weeks in prison in the UK for skipping bail while simultaneously fighting extradition to the United States for questioning over WikiLeaks. The 51-year-old actress claimed Assange has limited access to information and doesn’t get to contact his children.
“He is a good man, he is an incredible person. I love him, I can’t imagine what he has been going through,” Anderson said. “It was great to see him, but this is just misrule of law in operation. It is [an] absolute shock that he has not been able to get out of his cell.”
