A friend of Assange’s said that he is X-rayed daily in prison

He also does not have a normal opportunity to communicate with lawyers in court, as he is placed in a glass box, Stella Morris said.

British prison staff x-ray the founder of WikiLeaks, Julian Assange, on a daily basis. This was reported on Twitter on Wednesday by his companion Stella Morris.

 

“He [Assange] is woken up at 5am every day, handcuffed, taken to a cell, undressed and X-rayed”, –  the report says. Then, she says, Assanja is taken to court for an hour and a half, where he does not have a normal opportunity to communicate with lawyers, because he is placed in a glass box.

At the end of August Maurice said that her partner had lost a lot of weight and was suffering from various pains. She said that Assangeu is suffering a lot from what is known as frozen shoulder syndrome and that he has also recently dislocated his ankle.

The US Department of Justice has filed 18 criminal charges against the Australian. In particular, he is charged with crimes related to the largest case of disclosure of classified information in US history. Assanjo faces up to 175 years in prison on all of these charges.

On 7 September in London, hearings on the extradition of the founder of WikiLeaks to the USA began. Judge Vanessa Barreitzer, who presides over the hearings, is not tasked with reaching a verdict on the charges against Assange, but will have to decide whether Washington’s request complies with the British-American Extradition Agreement in force since 2007. If the request is granted by the US authorities, the Head of the British Home Office, Pritie Patel, will have to authorize the extradition of Assange. But even then, the Australian lawyers will still have the opportunity to challenge the decision in the High Court in London and then in the Supreme Court or the European Court of Human Rights, which could take years. An appeal against the court decision can also be made by the prosecution if extradition is refused.
