WikiLeaks: Assange in UK court ahead of extradition hearing
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange appeared in public for the first time in six months on Monday, seeming frail and confused during a British court appearance ahead of his extradition hearing.
He seemed to have difficulties recalling his birth date, and at the end of the hearing told District Judge Vanessa Baraitser that he had not understood what had happened in court.
He then complained about the conditions in which he was being kept at the high-security Belmarsh prison in southeast London.
Baraitser rejected his legal team’s request for more time to gather evidence, telling Assange his next case management hearing would take place on December 19, before a full extradition hearing in February.
Assange used WikiLeaks to publish classified military and diplomatic files in 2010 about US bombing campaigns in Afghanistan and Iraq that proved highly embarrassing to the US government.
Around 50 supporters gathered outside the court, chanting “free Julian Assange”, led by a man with a loudspeaker.Read more: The Punch Newspapers
