You may wish to ask Rob Davis whether Julian Assange was placed into healthcare on the 18th of April 2019 because he as HMP Belmarsh governor was concerned about “reputational damage” and not for medical reasons, as reported by Dr Nigel Blackwood, witness for the prosecution on the 24th of September 2020 during the US Extradition Hearing at The Old Bailey?
On the 24th of September 2020 during the US Extradition hearing prosecution witness Dr Nigel Blackwood, Reader in Forensic Psychiatry at Kings College London stated under oath during cross examination that “when Julian had been admitted to the healthcare wing on 18 April 2019, it had not been for any medical reason. It had been purely to isolate him from other prisoners because of the video footage of him that had been taken and released by a prisoner.” and that when defence lawyer Edward Fitzgerald asked Nigel Blackwood “why Assange would be moved to the medical wing because of a video taken by another prisoner? Blackwood said the Governor had found the video “embarrassing” and was concerned about “reputational damage” to the prison.”
