13/12/2019 – Julian #Assange Administrative hearing at Westminster Magistrates Court

A number of supporters for WikiLeaks and Julian Assange went to Westminster Magistrates Court to witness the short Administrative Court hearing by sitting in the public gallery of Court three which has only 13 seats available for the public.

Thomas Scripps writing for WSWS described Assange:

He was in a visibly worse state than at his last court appearance, appearing fidgety, tired and downcast. Witnesses in the public gallery agreed his health seemed to have deteriorated further.

Witnesses said Julian Assange hands were covered in white bandages. This is of grave concern considering over 60 medical doctors in letters to the UK government have raised the alarm that Julian has to be transferred to a university hospital and that staying in prison puts his life at risk.

Mohammed El Maazi reporting for Sputnik writes:

The case summary, which will be submitted by Assange’s legal team to the Court on 19 December, is a “dense document” with “potentially 20 witnesses” and “recently acquired evidence”, his lawyer said. “Mr Assange has not had the chance to review the summary let alone other evidence” Peirce told the court, noting that “to do it we would need proper time.”

“The logistics are unfortunately not achievable, Mr Assange is not being given what he needed and we are doing our utmost,” Peirce told Judge Baraitser.”
