WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange suffered a “mini-stroke” in a British prison in late October as he fought to avoid extradition to the United States to face espionage charges. That’s according to Assange’s fiancée Stella Moris, who said the stroke left Assange with a drooping right eyelid, memory problems and signs of neurological damage. Moris believes the stress from captivity paired with endless legal challenges has taken a deep toll on Assange’s mental and physical well-being. On Friday, a British court ruled in favor of the Biden administration’s appeal to extradite Assange to face charges in the U.S. The ruling has been condemned by journalists around the world as a major blow to press freedom.
