Julian Assange Update: COVID-19 outbreak in Belmarsh & Possibility of a Pardon
In this video, we provide the latest update on the Julian Assange case. Following a COVID-19 outbreak in Belmarsh prison, Assange chose not to attend his latest hearing for fear of contracting the virus. Belmarsh prison is on a strict lockdown due to a recent increase in positive cases. As a result, RSF and Doctors 4 Assange have called for Assange’s immediate release from prison. In addition, we examine the possibility of President Trump issuing a preemptive pardon to Julian Assange following a heartfelt plea from his fiance Stella Moris on social media.
