WIKILEAKS’ ASSANGE TO MARRY IN PRISON.
Written by awawa on March 24, 2022
WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange and his fiancee Stella Moris got married on Wednesday, at the high security London prison where he is being held during his extradition case.
Assange, 50, is fighting attempts to remove him from the UK to face trial in the United States over the publication of secret files relating to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Last week, the UK Supreme Court turned down a request to hear his appeal against the move, bringing the long running legal saga nearer to a conclusion.
Assange and Moris announced their engagement in November and were given permission to marry at Belmarsh prison in southeast London where he is on remand.
The’ Don’t Extradite Assange group ‘ said the wedding would be conducted by a registrar, with just four guests, two witnesses and two security guards in attendance.
