Lawyer Stella Assange says her husband, Julian Assange’s health is “deteriorating by the minute”.
For more than 1,500 days, Julian Assange has been waiting behind bars in London, under threat of extradition to the United States, where he faces espionage charges for leaking classified military documents.
Julian Assange’s wife addressed the National Press Club on Monday, campaigning for the WikiLeaks Founder to be freed.
“He’s stuck in a tiny concrete room … the United States want to put him on trial for publishing information,” Ms Assange told Sky News Australia.
“The potential sentence is 175 years, so if Julian ever sets foot in the United States, there is a real risk he will die in prison sooner or later.”
