Julian Assange moved to prison health ward as WikiLeaks reveal they have 'grave concerns' about his well-being


WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has been moved to the heath ward of Belmarsh prison. 

Last night the company released a statement confirming the move, adding that they have “grave concerns” over the state of his health. 

At the start of this month Mr Assange was jailed for 50 weeks for skipping bail in 2012.

The statement last night read: “Mr Assange’s heath had already significantly deteriorated after seven years in the Ecuadorian embassy, under conditions that were incompatible with basic human rights.”

Adding: “During the seven weeks in Belmarsh his health has continued to deteriorate and he has dramatically lost weight. The decision of prison authorities to move him to the health ward speaks for itself.”

The Ministry of Justice has been contacted for comment.
