WikiLeaks Founder Julian Assange To Marry His Lawyer Fiancee In Prison Today

 

 

 

Supporters of Julian Assange will gather outside a prison on Wednesday to celebrate the wedding of the WikiLeaks founder to his fiancee.

The ceremony will take place in Belmarsh prison in London, just weeks before the third anniversary of his dramatic arrest when he was dragged out of the Ecuadorian embassy in the capital.

Assange has been held in the high-security jail ever since as he fights extradition to the United States, where he is wanted over an alleged conspiracy to obtain and disclose national defence information following WikiLeaks’ publication of hundreds of thousands of leaked documents relating to the Afghanistan and Iraq wars.

His fiancee Stella Moris has spoken of her joy at being allowed to marry the WikiLeaks founder despite restrictions being placed on their wedding.

Assange has always denied wrongdoing and has won support for his case from human rights organisations and journalist groups across the world.

Ms Moris said that just four guests and two witnesses will be allowed to attend the ceremony, as well as two security guards.

The guests will have to leave immediately after the event, even though it is being held during normal visiting hours.

Ms Moris said: ‘Obviously we are very excited, even though the circumstances are very restrictive.

The cost of the ceremony will be picked up by the couple, who have two young children.

Supporters have been asked to dress as if they were attending a wedding.

Instead of sending gifts, it was suggested they donate to the new official Crowdfunder campaign, sponsor a park bench or similar in their area, and put up posters calling for Assange to be freed.
