More than 60 doctors from United States, Australia, Britain, Sweden, Italy, Germany, Sri Lanka, Poland have written to Priti Patel, the UK’s Home Secretary.
“We write this open letter, as medical doctors, to express our serious concerns about the physical and mental health of Julian Assange.
Mr Assange requires urgent expert medical assessment of both his physical and psychological state of health.
We have real concerns, on the evidence currently available, that Mr Assange could die in prison. The medical situation is thereby urgent. There is no time to lose.”
The doctors are calling for Julian Assange to be moved from Belmarsh prison in London to a university teaching hospital
