Assange fiancee: We will celebrate the day he comes home

The fiancee of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has hailed his “victory” in his fight to avoid extradition to the United States. However, Stella Moris said she and the couple’s two young sons cannot celebrate until the day he goes home. District Judge Vanessa Baraitser said at the Old Bailey on Monday that, due to the real risk of suicide, Assange, 49, should not be extradited by “reason of mental health”. But his supporters raised concerns that her judgment focused on his health and rejected defence arguments over freedom of speech.
