I closely examine the theory which underpins prosecutors’ case against #Assange

“Mr. Assange has been deliberately exposed, for a period of several years, to progressively severe forms of cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment, the cumulative effects of which can only be described as psychological torture”

By @wikileaks
“But [Assange] is really something I’ve never seen in 20 years,” Melzer said. “I’ve seen atrocities in war areas that were physically more horrible but I’ve never seen a single person pursued so relentlessly and with so little foundation.

U.N. Special Rapporteur Calls for Julian Assange to Be Freed, Citing “Psychological Torture”
"Assange shows all the symptoms of a person who has been exposed to PsychologicalTorture for a ProlongedPeriod of time...SevereStress & ConstantStress,a ChronicAnxiety,SeverePsychologicalTrauma.The psychiatrists that accompanied MyMission said that his state of health IsCritical"
"I examined this case, & I reported my concerns to the involved governments, which is now primarily the U.K. govt but also the Ecuadorean, the United States & the Swedish govts, which have each contributed, in my assessment, to the medical effects that we have observed now."
"I went to the prison w 2 very experienced & specialized medical experts,so experts that are specialized in examining,identifying & documenting symptoms of torture—physical torture or psychological torture.We ran medical protocols..RecognizedProtocols to examine TortureVictims.."
"Assange has been confined to a very controlled environment for about 7 years, w very little outside influence, it is possible to identify the causal relationship between the medical symptoms & the actual causes of the symptoms with a high degree of certainty."
"Now,our conclusions are that,first of all,it is the concerted effort of various states to hand him over to the🇺🇸which is a bit of the elephant in the room. That’s the one fear he has had since 2010,when he first published large amounts of compromising information about the US."
"He was then exposed to a relentless campaign of judicial persecution, I’d say, because it is an abuse of the judicial system in order to try to extradite him to the🇺🇸& get him to be prosecuted for a row of offenses, as we have now seen, under the Espionage Act."
"I believe that Mr. Assange has a credible case and a credible fear that he would not get a fair trial in the United States, that he would not be safe and protected from the types of detention and treatment that would violate the Convention Against Torture."
"He has,increasingly been exposed to a public campaign of public mobbing, vilification & intimidation,ranging from deliberate ridicule to insults & up to, actually, open calls for his assassination & murder, without,the concerned govts,ever interfering & trying to protect him..."
"Now, all of these elements have contributed, obviously, to a level of stress & anxiety that would be unbearable for anyone."
"But on top of this, when the NewGovt was elected in🇪🇨,the last govt that had actually provided him w refuge & protection TurnedAgainst him & started to deliberately harass him in order to get him ToLeave the embassy &/or to trigger a HealthCrisis that WouldJustify his expulsion"
"So all these elements have resulted in a medical picture and symptoms that are tantamount to what psychological torture would produce over a prolonged period."
"...When I was first approached by his defense team.. I was reluctant to do so, because, me, too, I had been affected by this prejudice that I had absorbed through all these public, you know, narratives spread in the media over the years."
"And only when I scratched the surface a little bit, I saw how little foundation there was to back this up and how much fabrication and manipulation there is in this case. So I encourage everybody to really look below the surface in this case.
"... Obviously, the “Collateral Murder” video has not led to any prosecutions, either. The only person that is being prosecuted here seems to be the one that actually exposed all of these crimes.
"...if someone gets sentenced to basically life without parole or 170 or 180 years in prison, for having conducted investigative journalism, then that really would amount, in itself, to a cruel & unusual punishment...would be in violation of international law..."
"My personal recommendation would simply be to release him, because he has already suffered enough. But, as a lawyer, I can acknowledge that there may be a formal requirement to conduct certain proceedings."
"But it is extremely important that his human rights are now being respected, that there is an independent observation of how these trials are being conducted..."
"& especially that his medical state of health be stabilized & he’s given sufficient time to recover, to regain strength, to be able to face whatever he has to face."
