Julian Assange’s life may end terribly soon…
The founder of WikiLeaks Mr Julian Assange is reported to be so sick he could die in prison if he does not get urgent medical care,according to an open letter sent Monday to British authorities.
A coalition of 60 doctors wrote to UK Home Secretary Priti Patel to express “serious concerns” about Assange’s fitness to stand trial as he fights extradition to the US on espionage charges.
“It is our opinion that Mr. Assange requires urgent expert medical assessment of both his physical and psychological state of health,” wrote the doctors, from the UK, Australia, Europe and Sri Lanka.
“Were such urgent assessment and treatment not to take place, we have real concerns, on the evidence currently available, that Mr. Assange could die in prison.
“The medical situation is thereby urgent. There is no time to lose,” the letter expressed.
The letter reveals Assange’s mental condition
The letter in further note stated that Assange, 48, suffers from psychological problems including “major depression,” as well as dental issues and a serious shoulder ailment. He also shows the “symptoms of a torture victim,” the letter claims.
Julian Assange is currently in Belmarsh prison on the outskirts of London serving a 50-week sentence for jumping bail as he also awaits his next extradition hearing in February.
The authorities of US have accused Assange of scheming with former Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning to hack a password for a classified government computer.
His sentence could be serving upto 175 years in prison under the Espionage Act but arguements claim he is a journalist entitled to First Amendment protection and therefore should live a free life.
In a world where truth and courage are taking the fate of the dinosaurs,its painful to see people who risk thier lives to expose the fallacies,hoax,lies and etcetera driving our governments,private lives and institutions suffer.
Please drop a word of encouragement for Mr Assange in the comment section.
