Julian Assange's Mum Slams 'Thuggish, Brutal, Unlawful Arrest' In Twitter Rant

Julian Assange's furious mum has branded the WikiLeaks founder's arrest as "thuggish, brutal and unlawful".

Christine Assange pledged to "fight like hell" to release her son in a scathing Twitter rant today.

She also railed against Theresa May, Ecuador's president and the London judge who called the WikiLeaks founder a "narcissist".

Mrs Assange, who lives in Australia, said Mrs May was "trying to divert attention away from her Brexit dog's breakfast by cheering on the thuggish, brutal, unlawful arrest of my courageous, tortured multi-award winning journalist son Julian."

Assange was seen being forcibly removed from the Ecuadorean embassy on Thursday.

The 47-year-old later appeared at Westminster Magistrates' Court.

District Judge Michael Snow described his behaviour as "that of a narcissist who cannot get beyond his own selfish interests".

But fuming Mrs Assange tweeted: "UK judge should NOT be making statements like this! This is (a) rubbish Legal process."

The gran also alleged her son had been "detained without charge", "deprived of fresh air, exercise and sun" and "denied proper medical/dental care" for several years.

"Please be patient, gentle & kind to him," she tweeted in a desperate plea to authorities in the UK.

Addressing Ecuado's president, Lenin Moreno, she tweeted: "Shame on you Lenin Moreno! May the Ecuadorean people seek vengeance upon you, you dirty, deceitful, rotten traitor!

"May the face of my suffering son haunt your sleepless nights.. And may your soul writhe forever in torturous Purgatory as you have tortured my beloved son!""
