More than 60 doctors have signed an open letter expressing “serious concerns about the physical and mental health of Julian Assange,” who is being held at a high-security British prison.
The founder of WikiLeaks was evicted from the Ecuadoran Embassy in London earlier this year and faces possible extradition to the United States on hacking charges.
The doctors, who hail from the United States, Britain, Italy, Germany, Sweden, Sri Lanka and Australia, demanded Assange be taken to a university teaching hospital for assessment and care and argued he was not fit to stand trial next year. They said years of medical assessments and reports on Assange’s health informed their complaint.
