1. This afternoon, I can restart watching the Julian #Assange hearing as my witness statement as a witness of fact will be read in the next days without need for cross-examination by the US counsel
2.Julian #Assange is wearing a mask
3. Lindsay Lewis, lawyer practising in US ( including US Supreme Court) represented Mr Hamza who was subjected to SAMs= Special Administrative Measures, while he was detained at ADX Colorado
4. Mr #Hamza was held in isolation from other prisoners, Lindsay Lewis had difficulties to communicate with his client ( Hamza) due to this prison regime ( SAMs)
5. Lindsay Lewis: Julian #Assange definitely eligible for SAMs=Special Administrative Measures, both in pre-trial and Post-trial, due to national security grounds
6. US lawyers, Lindsay Lewis, who represented Abu #Hamza describes Hamza ‘s prison regime in ADX Florence, Colorado: no interactions with other prisoners
7. Lindsay Lewis: most detainees on SAMs at ADX Florence, Colorado, spent almost all the day completely alone ( in isolation). Calls to family: 1 a month
8.Lindsay Lewis: I don’t know any defendant whose SAM regime has ever been successfully challenged
9. Clair Dobbin, US counsel, cross-examining Lindsay Lewis, US lawyer whose client, Abu Hamza, under SAMs at ADX Florence, Colorado, where Julian #Assange risks ending up. Same prison as #ElChapo
10. Unfortunately, such a bad audio!
11. Always unbelievable how US authorities and their counsels try to depict US prisons as a kind of “Soho house”
12. Clair Dobbin, US counsel, is trying to show that US lawyer Lindsay Lewis has limited direct knowledge and experience in dealing with convicted people in ADX Florence, Colorado, under SAMs
13. Lindsay Lewis: ADX inmates subjected to SAMs can’t simply have contacts with other detainees: it requires to obtain modifications of SAMs in order to do it
14. Clair Dobbin, US counsel, quotes a statement saying that inmates under SAMs can even join group therapy. Lindsay Lewis: how can they, considering they cannot be in contact with other inmates?!
15. Detainees under SAMs have their calls to family monitored. What about legal calls? Considerable difficulties when it comes to confidentiality of legal calls for inmates under SAMs
16. Lindsay Lewis: in US under SAMs Julian #assange unlikely to have same treatment he currently has in UK, at Belmarsh
17. James Lewis. US counsel, objects to have confidentiality granted to people providing evidence of risk of harm. judge Baraitser: confidentiality already granted to protected witnesses in the Spanish investigation
18. Judge Vanessa Baraitser asked whether protection for witnesses in the UCGLOBAL espionage case is required because of David Morales or even because of any alleged US role in the case. Mark Summers: protection from Morales and his associates
19. Mark Summers(JA defence) mentions conversations between David Morales( UCGlobal’s boss) and his *American friends* on plans to kidnap or poison Julian #Assange
20. Mark Summers ( JA defence) asks Judge Vanessa Baraitser to grant 2 protect witnesses anonymity in UK court. Baraitser approves it
21. Mark Summers ( JA defence) we agreed on witness statements of prof Chomsky etc ( including Maurizi)
22. Hearing is now over and will resume tomorrow 10 am London-time. I just had a chance to see Julian Assange:
No doubt he lost a lot of weight

Good morning! Finally a very good news in such depressing times: @nuclearban @BeaFihn just succeed in a tremendous achievement. #UNTreatyForProhibitionOfNuclearWeapons reached 50 ratifications which are needed to enter into force: icanw.org/historic_miles…
My country, #Italy, is the EU country with the highest number of #USNuclearWeapons on its soil and the only one with 2 #nuclearBases(#Aviano and #Ghedi): it's time to say: #NukesGoHome
In 2002, I was lucky enough to meet #JosephRotblat,one of the nuclear scientists who created the #NuclearDisarmament movement with #AlbertEinstein and #BertrandRussell. He had a unique story: he had left the #ManhattanProject as soon as he learned #Hitler didn't have the A-bomb

questa vicenda dell'infiltrazione dei nazisti negli apparati dello stato tedesco ha avuto poco rilievo,e invece è una storia da brivido:
non vi dimenticate che i servizi di intelligence e polizia tedeschi hanno accesso a uno dei più inquietanti programmi di #sorveglianzaMassa della #NSA, come ha rivelato #Snowden: si chiama XKeyScore.
il programma di sorveglianza di massa della #NSA chiamato #XKeyscore e rivelato solo grazie a #Snowden permette di tracciare ogni singola attività online dal primo giorno che un bambino accede a un computer o smartphone. Micidiale. Anche #Italia, insieme alla #Germania,ha accesso

1. I had mentioned you an unprecedented development in my #FOIA litigation on #WikiLeaks and @owenbowcott @guardian just revealed it: theguardian.com/politics/2020/…
2. the US authorities are trying to kill my #FOIA litigation to defend the right of the press to access the full documentation on #SarahHarrison,@khrafnsson @SwaziJAF: theguardian.com/politics/2020/…
3. after my #FOIA lawyers @estelledehon @suigenerisjen and I won our #FOIA case against #ScotlandYard (@metpoliceuk),#ScotlandYard used #nationalSecurity exemptions to fight my #FOIA,when we tried to appeal, they tried to block my appeal because I am Italian

vi avevo anticipato di un'azione senza precedenti delle autorità inglesi nel mio #FOIA su #WikiLeaks, in particolare su 3attuali/ex giornalisti #SarahHarrison,@khrafnsson e @SwaziJAF: ora vedo che il #Guardian ha rivelato cosa sta succedendo(inglese): theguardian.com/politics/2020/…
le autorità inglesi stanno cercando di impedirmi di appellare decisione #FOIA dopo che miei avvocati @estelledehon e @suigenerisjen e io abbiamo vinto in Tribunale contro #ScotlandYard. E' un tentativo senza precedenti
in pratica #ScotlandYard ha perso la causa in #Tribunale,prima ha invocato #sicurezzaNazionale contro mio #FOIA,poi visto che avevo soldi per combatterli in Tribunale,invocano il fatto che da italiana non ho diritto di appellare,sebbene abbia fatto già 3 appelli in UK

ecco perché io da 2 settimane insisto con questo clamoroso errore della #ColumbiaJournalismReview che parla di "incriminazione per #stupro" di Julian #Assange (inglese): cjr.org/the_profile/ju… devono correggerlo e chiedere scusa.
vi assicuro che in nessuna redazione seria del mondo verrebbe tollerato un errore tanto clamoroso in un caso di cronaca giudiziaria in cui reporter confonde un indagato,con un imputato (un indagato rinviato a giudizio) e un pregiudicato(indagato,rinviato a giudizio e condannato)
la cronaca giudiziaria può avere un devastante impatto sulla reputazione delle persone,perché rivela chi viene incriminato e condannato.E' parte vitale del giornalismo, ma deve essere fatta da persone competenti che conoscono differenza tra indagato,imputato,pregiudicato

1. Just to allow you to understand how compromised the press coverage about Julian #Assange,I invite you to read this article by @CJR: cjr.org/the_profile/ju… It does mention #RapeCharges:Even children know that there were NO rape #charges. I asked @cjr to amend it,@CJR has NOT
2. @cjr is the review of one the most respected schools of Journalism in the world: #ColumbiaJournalismSchool. Is it credible that @CJR's fact-checking failed so badly? As I said, even children know that there were NO #rapecharges.
3.The highly anomalous handling of the Swedish case revolves around this fact: #Assange was left in limbo for 10 years, with the Swedish prosecutors never charging him or dropping the case once and for all.
