Attorney Stella Moris, Assange’s fiance, attributes his declining health to the prison’s decrepit conditions, where he is “short of fresh air and sunlight, an adequate diet and the stimulus he needs.”
The mounting stress amid his ongoing battle to fight extradition to a US prison is also taking a toll, Moris explained.
“Julian is struggling and I fear this mini-stroke could be the precursor to a more major attack. It compounds our fears about his ability to survive the longer this long legal battle goes on,” she told the Mail on Saturday. “It urgently needs to be resolved. Look at animals trapped in cages in a zoo. It cuts their life short. That’s what’s happening to Julian. The never-ending court cases are extremely stressful mentally.
“I believe this constant chess game, battle after battle, the extreme stress, is what caused Julian’s stroke on October 27,” she continued. “It must have been horrendous hearing a High Court appeal in which you can’t participate, which is discussing your mental health and your risk of suicide and in which the US is arguing you are making it all up. He had to sit through all this when he should have been excused. He was in a truly terrible state. His eyes were out of synch, his right eyelid would not close, his memory was blurry.”
On Friday, an appellate court in London overturned a lower court’s ruling and set the precedent for Assange to be extradited to the U.S. to face espionage charges after publishing thousands of classified military and government documents.
“A judge said Assange, 50, who is currently being held at London’s high-security Belmarsh Prison, could kill himself if held under harsh U.S. prison conditions,” Fox News reports.
The US government offered assurances about Assange’s potential imprisonment, prompting the High Court to overturn the lower court’s ruling. He has until Dec. 23 to appeal the judgment.
JUST IN: UK High Court Approves US Government’s Legal Bid to Extradite WikiLeaks Founder Julian Assange
The US government has won its High Court bid to extradite Julian Assange. On Friday, a court in the United Kingdom ruled that Wikileaks founder Julian Assange can be sent to the United States to face trial. Last year, a US grand jury indicted Assange on 18 charges, 17 of which fall under the Espionage … Continue reading JUST IN: UK High Court Approves US Government’s Legal Bid to Extradite WikiLeaks Founder Julian Assange

In 2019, Assange was forcibly removed from the Ecuadorian Embassy in London and sent to Belmarsh.
“It remains an outrage that someone who is not serving a prison sentence should be held in prison for years on end. Julian is not a threat to anyone and it is a complete disregard to his individual liberty and our right to a family life,” Moris said. “The US plays dirty every step of the way – it’s a war of attrition. We can see from the fact that he has suffered a mini-stroke this is having a dangerous impact on him.”

Julian Assange Suffers Stroke; Father Says He Was Vaxxed In Prison
Assange’s father said during an interview live-streamed on November 15th that his son was vaccinated in prison and appeared to suggest he was pressured into it because he feared retaliation.
From Consortium News:
Julian Assange’s father, John Shipton, has told a French interviewer that his son has been given a Covid-19 vaccine in Belmarsh Prison.
“He has been vaccinated, of course,” Shipton told the show Thinkerview, live-streamed on Monday. “So he has no choice in this. No choice about anything. He has no control over his body.”
Shipton said every medicine Assange accepted in prison would go on his record and wind up in court. Likewise any medicine he refused would also be reported.
There is “not a mandated Vax” in the prison, Shipton told Consortium News in an email. “I was attempting to illustrate that Julian’s body is not under his control. All actions, as I understand it, are noted and available to [the] prosecution. The psychiatric staff and medical staff write reports which are available.”
Shipton told CN that “if [the] Vax [is] not taken, I presume prison administration, no less than other institutions …” would report it. “Thus a freedom which in practice does not exist,” he said.
Shipton told the French interviewer: “He only has choice about what he might think about from this minute to the next minute. What his thoughts are, are his. The rest is in the complete control of the jail administration because it is a maximum security prison. Everything … is supervised. “
According to testimony at his September 2020 extradition hearing, Assange had been reluctant to discuss his health with prison doctors, fearing he would be put in isolation.
The imprisoned WikiLeaks publisher has a chronic lung condition. His block at Belmarsh had an outbreak of the virus last year and was locked down.
Assange has said nothing on the record either way about vaccines or public health measures like lockdowns or wearing masks. He has been incommunicado directly with the public since Ecuador shut off his internet connection in March 2018 inside its embassy in London where Assange had been granted political asylum in 2012.
In August, the U.K. Ministry of Justice told Consortium News in an email that a vaccine was made available to all inmates at Belmarsh Prison, where Assange has been held since April 2019. He remains there on remand pending the U.S. appeal of a judgement not to extradite him.
“All prisoners have been offered a vaccine,” wrote MoJ senior press officer Sarah Fairely. “As it is a personal health matter we don’t hold the figures on those who have taken the vaccine.”
