Assange now has access to his lawyers – WikiLeaks

WikiLeaks confirmed on its Twitter page on Wednesday that Julian Assange “has access to his lawyers.” He is “now speaking with them regularly and will have an in person visit in the coming days,” according to the statement. Earlier reports said that the WikiLeaks publisher was being held in isolation in Britain’s Belmarsh prison, without access to legal counsel. Christine Assange, his mother, said on Monday that he has “still not been able to receive any visits… not even from his lawyers.” Mrs. Assange tweeted that his treatment was “outrageous, & appears punitive to continue to keep him isolated.”
