John Pilger and Roger Waters - ‘Freedom Denied’
By ICH & Agencies
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange’s hopes for freedom have been dashed after a judge refused him bail.
District judge Vanessa Baraitser rejected an application for Assange’s release over concern he would abscond.
It follows a decision that he should not be extradited to the US on mental health grounds due to the risk of suicide.
Assange will have to remain in custody as the US government is appealing against Monday’s extradition ruling.
Announcing her bail decision at Westminster Magistrates’ Court, Baraitser said: “As a matter of fairness, the US must be allowed to challenge my decision and if Mr Assange absconds during this process they will lose the opportunity to do so.
“Mr Assange still has a huge support network available to him should he again choose to go to ground.”
