WikiLeaks founders custody will be extended after current prison terms comes to end
Julian Assange will stay in prison after the custody period on his current jail term ends because of his history of absconding.
As home secretary, Sajid Javid signed an order in June allowing Assanges extradition to the US over hacking allegations. A 50-week jail term was imposed in the UK after he had jumped previous bail by going into hiding in the Ecuadorian embassy in London.
The WikiLeaks founder would have been released from HMP Belmarsh on 22 September, Westminster magistrates court heard on Friday, but he was told he would be kept in jail because of substantial grounds for believing he would abscond again.
Assange, 48, who is an Australian citizen, appeared by video-link wearing a loose-fitting T-shirt.
District judge Vanessa Baraitser told him: You have been produced today because your sentence of imprisonment is about to come to an end. When that happens your remand status changes from a serving prisoner to a person facing extradition.

They really don’t want him spilling the beans that Seth Rich was the source of the DNC data.
Let him go......
When they extradite him, are they going to put him in Epstein’s cell?
They’ve got a nice cell waiting for him in Manhattan with broken cameras and sleeping guards.
Release date is Sept. 22 which has passed.
Send him back here so he can commit Suicide (while nobody notices) in his American Jail Cell. It’s all the rage.
are they going to put him in Epsteins cell?
That’s exactly what they have in mind.
They will put him in Epsteins cell and for the ame reason.
Wow. And we STILL were surprised when it actually happened.
Or they could do him in the way they did Whitey Bulger.
What a rotten government we have.
I’m surprised he hasn’t been suicided yet.
Let me guess, eternally in jail, never put on trial...?
If extradited, he’ll probably find his way either to the DC MCC or the NYC MCC where he’ll tragically “commit suicide.”
Has the US formally requested that the UK extradite Assange? If so, by refusing, is the UK now in violation of the Geneva and/or Hague Convention/s?
Seth Rich being murdered for leaking the DNC data to Assange completely exposes Russia,Russia,Russia as the hoax that it is, and it was done mainly as cover of the truth.
