Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has been transferred out of solitary confinement in a British prison, where he has been waiting for his extradition trial for over nine months. That’s according to canberratimes.com.au.
Assange’s contact and access to visitors was severely limited in what many saw as a punitive action, according to the story. If he is extradited to the United States, he will face charges of spying and conspiracy. Some consider it a landmark test of the protection of journalists’ sources. Assange critics claim he is not a journalist.
Assange’s legal team and other inmates reportedly led the effort to get him transferred out of solitary confinement, claiming that his treatment was unfair and unjust.
Assange’s legal team claims that he is still being denied meaningful access to his attorneys.
