Pamela Anderson has penned an online love letter to Julian Assange calling on world leaders to intervene to set the WikiLeaks founder free.

The former Baywatch star said there was no longer any need to keep him “trapped in a small room” now that Sweden has dropped its case against him.

Mr Assange has been holed up in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London for almost five years after seeking asylum as he feared he would be extradited to Sweden to answer allegations of sexual assault which he denied.

He was also concerned that if he was taken to the Scandinavian country then he could be sent to the US to face trial over WikiLeaks’ release of classified American government documents.

In the letter, Anderson said Theresa May was the “worst prime minister in living memory” but praised Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.

The 49-year-old actress continued: “But Theresa May – who kept him imprisoned in the embassy for five years – refuses to allow him to leave.

“Theresa May, who is on her last legs. Theresa May of the pyhrric victory (sic).

“Theresa May, who won’t shake the hand of the victims of the Grenfell fire. Who doesn’t care about poor people. Who doesn’t care about justice or peace. Who doesn’t care about Julian.

“The worst prime minister in living memory.”

Anderson also invited French President Emmanuel Macron and his wife Brigitte to the opening of her new restaurant in France in July, and asked him to grant Mr Assange asylum.

She wrote that she and Mr Corbyn have a mutual compassion for animals, while saying Mr Assange, 45, should be given compensation.

To Mr Corbyn, she said: “I have watched the recent UK election with great interest. I have cheered the turn in your party’s fortunes! You are clearly a decent and fair man.”

Anderson describes the US government as the “ultimate bully, a superpower, with 1,200 military bases all around the world”.

In the letter posted on pamelaandersonfoundation.org, the ex-Playboy model gushed over how his “bravery and courage” make Mr Assange sexy.

She signed it: “I love you, Pamela.”

    North Korea has warned the US would take a “dangerous and big step” towards nuclear war if it enforces a naval blockade.

    It said it would take “merciless self-defensive” measures.

    North Korea state media said the Trump administration was “pursuing a policy of military confrontation but this is nothing but a death-bed struggle by those alarmed by the might of the DPRK always emerging victorious”.

    “Should the United States and its followers try to enforce the naval blockade against our country, we will see it as an act of war and respond with merciless self-defensive counter-measures as we have warned repeatedly,” said KCNA, citing a foreign ministry spokesman.

    Although a blockade to enforce trade sanctions is not believed to be imminent, after North Korea’s November rocket test US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said it was a possibility.

    White House National Security adviser HR McMaster said in September however, that even ‘non-strike’ options carried the risk of military escalation.

    North Korea’s latest threat comes as Chinese President Xi Jinping – during a visit by South Korea’s leader – said war must not be allowed to break out.

    “The peninsula issue must, in the end, be resolved via dialogue and consultation,” he said.

    South Korea’s Yonhap news agency said the presidents had agreed to cooperate in applying sanctions and pressure on the North.

    UN chief Antonio Guterres also said on Thursday that it was vital Security Council resolutions on North Korea were fully implemented by all countries.

    “The worst possible thing that could happen is for us all to sleepwalk into a war,” Mr Guterres said during a visit to Tokyo to meet Japan’s PM.

    North Korea’s leader Kim Jong Un continues to defy the international community with regular missile tests and threats of nuclear strikes against the US mainland if provoked.

    The latest test – of a long-range Hwasong-15 rocket – was last month.

    Despite President Trump’s bombastic language and counter-threats, Mr Tillerson recently offered direct talks with North Korea without pre-conditions.

    Russia’s Vladimir Putin – speaking at his annual news conference on Thursday – said a pre-emptive US strike against North Korea would be “catastrophic” and called Mr Tillerson’s offer a “realistic” approach.
