9/23/20 Kevin Gosztola: Day 12 of the Assange Extradition Hearing

by | Sep 23, 2020 | Interviews

Kevin Gosztola is back for another update on Julian Assange’s extradition hearing. A major focus of the last few days, he says, has been Assange’s mental health, including a brand new diagnosis of Asperger syndrome. The defense has argued that this, combined with serious depression, would make him unfit for high-security imprisonment and for certain kinds of questioning that he would likely have to undergo in the U.S. The defense has also continued to emphasize the insidious and illegal tactics employed by the U.S. government and its allies during Assange’s confinement in the Ecuadorean embassy, demonstrating that all along this has been about the deliberate targeting of a political enemy, not some disinterested quest for justice.
