U.S. requested his extradition to face 18 separate charges under the banner of espionage, related to assisting Chelsea Manning exfiltrate classified information: Being found guilty of these could theoretically and cumulatively result in a 170-year prison sentence for the #WikiLeaks founder.

So the full hearing will go ahead starting on 25 February and will be heard in HM Prison Belmarsh: Newswire AP described Assange as looking healthy but thinner than at earlier hearings and said he acknowledged the public gallery stuffed with his supporters. He was described as being frail and struggled to give his name and date of birth, and said he was struggling to think.

The director has had his accounts frozen, his passport seized and must report to a local court every two weeks El Pais’ English edition reported.

Assange’s brief released this statement.
