Assange Too Sick to Appear at His Own Extradition Hearing

(ANTIWAR.COM— WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was unable to attend a court hearing in London on US attempts to extradite him, with his lawyer saying he is simply too ill to make an appearance and has been relocated to his prison’s medical ward.

A statement from WikiLeaks reported Assange’s health had “significantly deteriorated” from his seven years inside the Ecuadorian embassy, and in his seven weeks in British prison, he has gotten worse and is losing a lot of weight.

The court has adjourned the extradition hearing until June 12, and has indicated that it will be held inside Belmarsh prison at that time, which may allow Assange to attend, health permitting.

Assange is facing 50 weeks in prison in Britain for hiding in the embassy. The US wants him extradited, and charges already disclosed under the Espionage Act would have him facing 170 years in prison.
