UK: Julian Was Harassed, Says Assange's Father on Eve of Extradition Hearing

Assange’s father John Shipton and Former Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis visited Wikileaks co- founder Julian Assange ahead of his extradition hearing in Belmarsh prison, London on Sunday.

“Julian had a harassment today. He goes to court tomorrow and they searched his cell this afternoon just before he came down to see us,” said Shipton.

“This plague of malice that emanates from the Crown Prosecuting Service to Julian Assange must stop immediately,” Shipton stated, pointing out that a bail ought to be given immediately if the extradition order was not a fraud.

Yanis Varoufakis, leader of the European Realistic Disobedience Front (MeRA25) expressed his insights clearly: “We have to stop this extradition in 300 years interests of trying to establish human rights,” he stated. “The only reason why he [Assange] is imprisoned, is because he embarrassed those who committed crimes against humanity,” he added.

Whistleblower Julian Assange has been imprisoned since May 1st and remains incarcerated in the high-security prison despite having completed his sentence for skipping bail, as he awaits an extradition hearing to the United States.
