Julian Assange’s Wife Warns of His Failing Health Ahead of Extradition Hearing

Stella Assange, the wife of Julian Assange, is speaking out about her husband’s declining health as he faces the final phase of his extradition process to the United States. Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, is facing 18 charges of espionage and computer intrusion in the U.S. after publishing classified information.

Stella Assange expressed serious concerns about her husband’s physical and mental well-being, stating that he will not survive the extreme conditions of a high-security American prison. She warned that if he is extradited to the U.S., he will die.

Julian Assange has been held in Belmarsh prison in London since 2019, and his health has deteriorated since suffering a small stroke in October 2021. Stella Assange emphasized that her husband spends 22 hours a day in a small glass cell and is at risk of suicide.

She also criticized the supposed “diplomatic guarantees” offered by Washington, stating that they are conditional and do not prevent the U.S. from doing anything. She expressed doubt that he would ever be seen again if he is handed over to the U.S.

The High Court of London will decide whether to allow Assange to appeal his case again in the UK or to proceed with his extradition to the U.S. If the extradition is approved, his legal team plans to request urgent intervention from the European Court of Human Rights.

There are hopes that talks between the US and Australian governments may lead to the charges against Assange being dropped. His legal team is arguing that the charges are politically motivated.

Assange has been in legal limbo since being expelled from the Ecuadorian embassy in London in 2019 and faces a long legal battle ahead. The case has raised concerns about press freedom and government transparency.
