Julian Assange is moved to the hospital wing of the Belmarsh prison after falling away with WikiLeaks during his sentence for avoiding justice and alleged & # 39; serious concerns & # 39; to have for his health
Julian Assange has reportedly moved the HMP Belmarsh hospital wing after a & # 39; dramatic & # 39; weight loss.
It is only a day before the founder of WikiLeaks appears in court for a hearing about his extradition to the United States to cover spying costs.
In a statement, the organization said: & # 39; WikiLeaks is deeply concerned about the health status of our publisher, Julian Assange, who has been transferred to the health department of Belmarsh prison.
& # 39; Mr. Assange's health had already deteriorated considerably after seven years within the Ecuadorian embassy, under conditions that were incompatible with fundamental human rights. & # 39;

It added: & # 39; During the seven weeks in Belmarsh, his health continued to deteriorate and he lost weight dramatically.
& # 39; The decision of the prison authorities to take him to the ward speaks for itself. & # 39;
Assange had to appear before the Westminster Magistrates & Court tomorrow for a hearing on his extradition request after the US filed hacking charges against him.
After being piloted from the Ecuadorian embassy last month, he was sentenced to 50 weeks in a British prison for violating his bail conditions in 2012 to be extradited to Sweden for sexual offenses.
