Assange marries lawyer Stella Moris in jail

One of those present acted as a photographer of the link, with the 50-year-old boyfriend dressed in a kilt, the traditional Scottish skirt, thus evoking the origin of his parents born in Australia. Vienne Westwood, who for years has defended Assange’s freedom, had designed the clothing of both parties, creating for Moris, 38, an elegant long gray dress, which was accompanied by a white tulle veil in which colored signatures of some friends had been stamped.

I am marrying the love of my life”, wrote the lawyer in an article in ‘The Guardian’ in which she complains about the refusal of the prison management to accept the presence of journalists or a photographer. “I am convinced that they are afraid to see Julian as a human being,” she says. “Not a name, but a person. The fear of him reveals that they want Julian to remain invisible to the public at all costs, even on his wedding day and especially on his wedding day.” Supporter organizations had called a rally outside the prison, where several dozen people had come with banners of support and a wedding cake.

The couple had a secret relationship since 2015, during the time that Assange was a refugee in the Ecuadorian embassy in London, where he spent five years. From the union were born Gabriel, 4 years old, and Max, 3 years old., with which Moris posed, already dressed as a bride, upon arrival at the jail. The ex-hacker has at least one recognized son over 31 years old, residing in Australia, although he would have confessed to having four other descendants from different mothers.

Assange’s wedding does not add or subtract anything to your legal situation. Last week the Supreme Court rejected the possibility that the prisoner’s legal team will appeal the sentence of a lower court authorizing the extradition. The British Home Secretary, Priti Patel, must ratify the extradition, a step that may be the last in the legal processing of the case, but in which it is still possible to try to appeal.

In Belmarsh prison for three years, if extradited Assange faces 18 espionage charges related to the WikiLeaks leak of sensitive US military data and diplomatic cables.
