WikiLeaks co-founder Julian Assange misses scheduled court appearance, reportedly unwell

Reading Time: < 1 minute

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.
