Consortium News

January 6th 2021

John Pilger discusses the outcome of today's bail hearing, in the wake of a ruling by UK judge, Vanessa Baraitser, not to extradite Julian Assange to the US and to discharge him. The prosecution announced that an appeal against the decision would likely be forthcoming within the allocated 14 days, in response to which Baraitser suggested he be kept in custody, pending that appeal. Mr Fitzgerald for the defense immediately raised the issue of bail, given the high risk to Mr Assange's health if he remains in Belmarsh.
