Assange in ‘grim’ place


The partner of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has described his ongoing incarcerat­ion in HMP Belmarsh in south London as “intolerabl­e and grotesque”.

Stella Moris, 38, and the couple’s two children visited Assange in prison for the first time in eight months yesterday.

Ms Moris described the prison as a “grim, horrible place” and said him being locked up “degrades the UK, and it is a threat to press freedom in the UK”.
