Leaked footage from inside the prison where Julian Assange is currently serving a 50-week sentence for skipping bail in 2012 has been released.
NOTE: We aren’t sure why the video has a timestamp of “2017″ which would clearly make the footage a couple of years old. But we do know that it’s not from 2017 because Julian Assange was claiming asylum at the Ecuadorian embassy in London in 2017.
The “2017″ date/time stamp is most likely from the cam recorder which was used to record this video. The owner simply didn’t configure it on the device so by default when you purchase it, the date starts at 2017/1/1
Although the timestamp on the video says ‘2017,’ Ruptly believes this discrepancy to be due to a faulty setting on the recording device and that the video was shot inside Belmarsh prison, where Assange arrived in April 2019. Ruptly has not been able to verify if Assange is aware of the existence of the footage.
Assange can be seen in the leaked video walking around what is presumed to be his living quarters in Belmarsh Prison in southern London. The video also shows the WikiLeaks founder talking, smiling, and even laughing with other inmates
The video shows Assange in the maximum security facility washing dishes, leaning against a foosball table, and having a pretty chilled time. There’s also footage of what looks like Assange’s bed, lots of books, newspapers, cups, and TV or computer monitor.
The U.S. Department of Justice is seeking to extradite Assange to the United States to face 18 charges, including an alleged violation of the Espionage Act after he published sensitive diplomatic cables and Iraq War videos in 2010.
