Assange could die in prison

Doctors Petition UK Home Secretary Over Julian Assange

More than 60 doctors from around the world have written an open letter to UK Home Secretary saying they fear Julian Assange’s health is so bad that he could die inside a top-security British jail

“From a medical point of view, on the evidence currently available, we have serious concerns about Mr Assange’s fitness to stand trial in February 2020. Most importantly, it is our opinion that Mr Assange requires urgent expert medical assessment of both his physical and psychological state of health. Any medical treatment indicated should be administered in a properly equipped and expertly staffed university teaching hospital (tertiary care). 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.”#
