Julian Assange denied bail by London court

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has been denied bail by a London court after his lawyers argued that the Covid-19 pandemic posed a serious threat to his health in light of his pre-existing conditions.

Judge Vanessa Baraitser ruled that the global pandemic “does not provide grounds” for Assange’s release.

She also cited Assange’s “past conduct” which she said “shows the lengths he is prepared to go to avoid extradition proceedings.”
