Doctor reveals health decline of Julian Assange

The WikiLeaks founder's seven-year confinement has left him physically and psychologically damaged, says a physician who visited him at the Ecuadorian embassy

Details of a doctor’s assessment of the health of Julian Assange during his seven-year confinement in the Ecuadorian embassy in London, UK, have emerged.

They show Mr Assange’s physical and mental health were severely affected by his self-sought asylum in the embassy, which finally came to an end on 11 April after Ecuadorian authorities withdrew his asylum status.
