According to Morris, Assange suffered a stroke at the end of October – the first day of a court hearing in London – where he assessed the validity of the decision to prevent his deportation to the United States.
“He should be released immediately.” Morris wrote on Twitter on Saturday night.
According to The Mail on Sunday, Assange suffered a stroke, loss of memory, symptoms of neurological damage and is currently on medication.
Morris expressed concern that a legal dispute over the deportation of her fianc to the United States could cause her another serious stroke.
“I believe this consistent chess game, war after war, extreme stress, caused Julian’s stroke on October 27th.” Morris said.
A British appeals court in London on Friday overturned a lower court ruling that barred WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange from being deported to the United States, where he faces a life sentence.
However, the ruling does not mean that British authorities will immediately hand over Assange to the United States, and the AP notes that Assange is likely to appeal the decision again. However, according to the BBC, Friday’s ruling in the High Court in London represents a step towards a possible extradition.
