For no apparent reasons District Attrorney Judge Vanessa Baraitser denied the Bail for Assange saying,"I am satisfied that there are substantial grounds for believing that if Mr. Assange is released today he would fail to surrender to court to face the appeal proceedings."

She denied the COVID threat in Belmarsh Prison where Assange is going to be kept. Despite of the previous incidents when he has been deliberately put under high mental toture in the same prison. Assange's suppoorters claim the suicidal risk that UK court itself has pointed, has arisen due to his tratment as prison.

Assange is in prison since 2019 after seeking sanctuary at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London in 2012. He was holed up there for years after Sweden issued an arrest warrant. 

The court had handed him a 50 week jail term, now he has been in jail for more than twice to that sentence. The UN called the sentence "disproportionate. United Nation has also been saying US accusations against assange entirely political.

Assange supporters say, Assange is safest in England, he won't flee from here, so its is totally senseless to not bail him for the potential appeal that could never happen.

People are spectacullating President Trump will pardon Assange at the end of his term. 

People protesting and demanding to free Julian Assange outside the London Magistrate Court have been arrested by police.
