It’s clear that life in prison is so clouded by WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange that he suffered a stroke, according to his South African-born fiancée Stella Morris.

daily Mail Reports said Morris said Assange suffered a stroke in Belmarsh Prison on Saturday 11 December 2021. Assange is reported to be in poor condition – ptosis of the right eyelid, memory problems and signs of neurological damage.

Morris and Assange apparently believe that his stroke was caused by the tension caused by the ongoing legal drama with the United States (US). Assange is currently fighting efforts to extradite him to the United States, where he faces espionage charges stemming from his purchase and leakage of classified documents related to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Assange has been in prison since 2019 after he was poorly transferred from the Ecuadorean embassy in London. Assange took refuge in the embassy in 2012 to avoid extradition to Sweden over a sexual assault case that has since been dropped.


Julian Assange’s health has reportedly been deteriorating since October 2021. According to the Daily Mail, Assange had to undergo an MRI after experiencing a “transient ischemic attack” (which could be a warning sign of a full-blown stroke) and he Now he takes anti-stroke medication. Stella Morris, who acquired Assange in 2017, bemoaned the Australian citizen’s imprisonment.

Julian is struggling and I fear this small stroke is a precursor to a larger attack. It compounds our fears about his ability to survive the longer this long legal battle continues. A solution is sorely needed. Look at the animals trapped in cages at the zoo. It shortens their lives This is what happens to Julian. The never-ending court cases are very mentally exhausting.”

Morris alleges that Assange was held in his cell for unreasonably long prison terms without sufficient fresh air and a proper diet. It all comes as the Assange case has taken a beating – the US on Friday won an appeal against a British court ruling that blocked Assange’s extradition.
