AMY WINEHOUSE’S mother-in-law last night called for her to be arrested – after the junkie singer was caught again on video snorting cocaine. The troubled Back to Black star was secretly filmed hoovering up the Class A drug in a packed London pub. This is the FIRST time Georgette Civil has spoken out about the shocking 36-second footage, which was filmed last month during Amy’s DJ set in a Camden pub.
And her sensational comments come in the week that Amy is set for another rehab stint at the Focus 12 Clinic in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk. Amy has booked into the clinic just a short drive from the jail where hubby Blake Fielder Civil is being held.
Now Blake’s mother Georgette Civil wants Amy locked up like her recovering drug addict son son. And last night Georgette told the News of the World: “Prison will do Amy far more good than Rehab.” Amy was filmed at The Monarch pub in Camden last month while standing in front of a Union Jack flag. Desperate for a fix, the singer is seen snorting the cocaine off a CD case in full view of partygoers.
Now Amy’s mother-in-law Georgette wants the police to take action and arrest her. In an exclusive interview she said: “I’m shocked by the video. When I look at Amy I think: ‘For Christ’s sake, just get a grip of yourself.’ “Enough is enough.
“As the police know Amy is a drug addict – and she has now been caught twice on film taking illegal drugs – they should arrest her and put her behind bars.
“Rehab clinics are a waste of money, unless you want them to work. “Amy doesn’t want to give up drugs, so she’s got to learn the hard way in prison. “Police have to act. She is making a mockery of the law. It has got to stop. “The price Amy has got to pay is losing her freedom.” The video footage comes only two months after Britain’s top cop Sir Ian Blair called for celebrity junkies caught on camera to be put on trial.
Sir Ian said: “My position is that a sensible jury would not expect people to be sniffing talcum powder.” In January Amy was caught smoking a crack pipe on video at her East London home, but avoided any charges because cops could not prove what she was taking. She has since spiralled out of control, while her jailed husband has managed to get himself clean of drugs. Source
