WikiLeaks co-founder Julian Assange missed a scheduled court appearance on Thursday because he is unwell, his lawyer said.
The 47-year-old had been expected to appear from prison via video link at a brief extradition hearing at Westminster Magistrates’ Court, London, Euronews reports.
Lawyer Gareth Peirce told the court Assange was “not very well”. Judge Emma Arbuthnot said a more substantive extradition hearing set for June 12 may be moved to a court next to Belmarsh Prison for convenience.
Roughly two dozen supporters chanted “Free Assange” outside the court.
