Assange defense asks court to adjourn hearing for three months

2019-10-21T10:30:39.072Z

The defense of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange asks the court to postpone the hearing for three months due to the complexity of the process, reports RIA Novosti.



According to the representative of Assange, only last week they were given documents on the case, they are sent by mail, and the founder of WikiLeaks in prison does not have access to a computer.

“The issues raised in this case are complex and require the collection of evidence and research by their lawyers,” he said.

The defense side considers it necessary to reflect in the case that the United States "intercepted" messages while Assange was talking with lawyers while he was at the Embassy of Ecuador.

The next technical hearing on the Assange extradition case is being held at the Westminster Magistrate’s Court in London. Their goal is to determine the agenda for future meetings. Assange appeared at them.

RT is broadcasting live from the courthouse.
