First: ‘Julian Assange Examined by Doctors As MSM And Democrats Push Fake Meeting With Paul Manafort’, By Aaron Kesel, Activist Post, December 16, 2018
“WikiLeaks founder and former editor Julian Assange underwent a series of medical exams, Ecuador’s top attorney Inigo Salvador said.
Salvador told reporters Ecuador did not have access to the results of the tests as doctors are forbidden from sharing patient information in the UK.
A lawyer for Assange stated he did not know the results of the medical tests, while further calling on Ecuador to produce documentation proving that the UK would not extradite him to any country where his life would be at risk. Most notably, an at-risk country would be the United States, which WikiLeaks noted just tortured a former CIA agent and suspected alleged WikiLeaks Vault 7 leaker, Joshua Schulte by bolting him to the floor, video-monitoring and strip-searching him. If we are being honest, when they got their hands on Assange, would probably do much of the same except 100x worse to the WikiLeaks founder for exposing numerous crimes by the U.S. government.
“We insist that they show us the letter from the United Kingdom,” Assange’s lawyer, Carlos Poveda said. Adding, “the protocol is meant to set the rules of his living situation, but it seems more like a penitentiary regime.” [snip]
In June 2018, a letter to UK Home office Member of Parliament Zac Goldsmith revealed that the government would not confirm whether it has received an extradition request from the U.S. until Assange is arrested in relation to that request according to Assange Legal.”
@assangelegal “As a matter of policy, UK will not reveal whether it has received an extradition request from the US until Assange is arrested in relation to that request.
“Assange’s doctor, Sean Love, has previously stated in an opinion piece that depriving him of medical care is “cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment.” Adding, “It is time for Australia to intervene.”
Other doctors who have previously examined Assange, Sondra Crosby, an associate professor at Boston University’s school of medicine and public health, and Brock Chisholm, a clinical psychologist in London have stated much the same.
All three called on safe passage for Assange to a hospital. In an article for the Guardian, they wrote:
While the results of the evaluation are protected by doctor-patient confidentiality, it is our professional opinion that his continued confinement is dangerous physically and mentally to him and a clear infringement of his human right to healthcare.
The above health concerns are coupled with surveillance technology that was a requirement for Assange to remain in the embassy, including signal jammers and all of the additional technology that is emitting various electromagnetic waves. So one can only guess about what condition Assange is in when it comes to his health.[big snip]
“As journalist and Internet Party NZ President Suzie Dawson previously posed the question in her “Being Julian Assange” mega-article on Assange’s situation and WikiLeaks’ history, “we need to ask ourselves whether we are we watching Assange die before our very eyes?”
Now I hadn’t seen that news on WikiLeaks on Twitter, unless it had been in Spanish, nor does Telesur english have it but more news from the Twittersphere:
from the Tweet above:
“Assange denounces ‘espionage’
As a result of Ecuador’s change of heart, the relationship between Assange and his hosts has soured, but the WikiLeaks founder is still reluctant to leave.
Venezuela-based Latin American broadcaster Telesur reported on Wednesday that Assange had claimed to be under surveillance within the embassy, an accusation he made to reporters in a video conference. Assange accused the FBI of running an operation to pressure Quito to end his political asylum deal and extradite him to the United States.
Assange claimed that his surveillance information was being sent directly to the FBI. He also criticized Ecuadorian authorities, saying that officials at the embassy had made “pejorative and threatening comments” about him and that his work as a journalist had been questioned.
The Australian spoke out against his housing restrictions, noting that he lives in a type of “solitary confinement,” which is now threatening his health.”
Assange had also said in that teleconference that he was being tortured and killed like Jamal Kashoggi, only more… subtly.
