Julian Assange extredition hearing will go ahead next month after his lawyers failed in bid to postpone the case amid coronavirus pandemic

"There’s a long history of adequate access to him even before Covid-19. The government restrictions in these grave times mean we haven’t been able to take details from numerous witnesses in this country, in the US, Germany and further afield.

’It is wholly impossible to inform him of the product of the work we are doing. Staff are in short supply.

’Although the coronavirus has affected possibilities by video link the problem whether he may be able to hear and see what is going on in court.

’If there are witnesses being heard by video-link that simply would not be possible. He would not be able to hear and see all that went on in court.

’That’s even assuming his lawyers can be in court and we can all be in the same building. He simply would not have a fair hearing.

’A telephone hearing is ruled out because he needs to be able to hear and see what is going on and to be seen and heard."

“Two weeks ago: Judge refused bail to Julian Assange saying that he, and all other prisoners, would be safe in Belmarsh Prison (@hmpbelmarsh). Today the BBC is reporting first death in Belmarsh, with many other prisoners infected.”
