Assange, currently detained in Belmarsh maximum security prison, had no visits over the weekend following last Friday’s announcement.
”The prison it’s a constant humiliationbut what happened on Friday was particularly cruel, “said Stella Assange.” After the announcement of Patel’s decision, Julian was taken from his cell so that he could be searched and then escorted to a cell where he remained for the rest of the weekend His own cell was ransacked. They were looking for things that could be used to take their own life“he added, according to reports from the Daily Mail.
