“I can’t think properly. I don’t understand how this is equitable. This superpower had 10 years to prepare for this case and I can’t access my writings. It’s very difficult where I am to do anything but these people have unlimited resources,” Assange said.
His lawyer Mark Summers, who recalled that his client's case has obvious political biases, denounced that the U.S. government interfered private conversations between Assange and his lawyers at the Ecuadorian embassy in London, where he was isolated for almost seven years.
At the hearing, former London Mayor Ken Livingstone and filmmaker John Pilger showed to express their solidarity with Assange.
On May WikiLeaks expressed his "grave concern" about the health status of the Australian journalist after he was transferred to the medical unit of the prison.
Judge Baraitser convened for Dec. 19 the following administrative hearing prior to the Assange extradition trial, which is set for Feb. 25, 2020.
