WATCH: Rare glimpse of Julian Assange INSIDE prison van

WATCH: Rare glimpse of Julian Assange INSIDE prison van
A Ruptly videographer managed to capture exclusive footage of a clean-shaven Julian Assange being transported through the streets of London following his court hearing on Monday.

Assange, 48, spent seven years in exile in the Ecuadorian embassy in London before being handed over to British authorities who were invited into the premises to take him into custody.

The Wikileaks founder was filmed without the long beard he wore during his last public appearance in May when he was sentenced to 50 weeks in jail for skipping bail years previously. During his court appearance he appeared confused and complained, once again, about the conditions of his captivity.

Assange is being held in British prison pending his February 2020 hearing to decide whether he will be extradited to the US to stand trial for possession and dissemination of classified information.
