According to the BBC, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has been allowed to marry his partner Stella Morris at the Bellmarsh Prison in London, UK. Assange and Stella have two children, Gabriel and Marcus. According to Stella, the two were born while Assange was staying at the Ecuadorian embassy.
According to prison officials, Assange’s request was considered by the prison governor in accordance with the rules. A prison spokesman said: “We have received a request from Julian Assange. Just as an ordinary prisoner’s request is considered, so is his request. ‘
Stella Morris told the Press Agency that she no longer intends to interfere in the affairs of her marriage.
In an interview with Mail Online last year, South African-born lawyer Stella Morris said she had been in a relationship with Assange since 2015 and was raising her two children alone.
“I first met Assange in 2011 when I was part of the WikiLeaks legal group,” Stella said in a video message posted on WikiLeaks’ YouTube channel.
According to Stella, she always visited Assange at the embassy, and at that time she began to understand him better.
The two fell in love in 2015 and were engaged two years later.
According to Stella, Julian Assange watched the birth of both babies via video link and went to the embassy to see the baby with her father.
Assange, 50, is accused of spying for the United States and is fighting extradition.
The United States wants to sue Assange for allegedly gathering and leaking national security information after thousands of leaked documents related to the Afghanistan and Iraq wars were leaked to WikiLeaks.
WikiLeaks reported in April 2010 that footage of US troops firing on civilians from a helicopter in Iraq was included.
Assange sought refuge at the Ecuadorian embassy in London in 2012 to avoid extradition to Sweden in a sex crime case. This issue is now over. He has been denying allegations of sexual misconduct against him.
Assange was forcibly removed from the Ecuadorian embassy in 2019 for violating bail conditions. He has since been held in Belmarsh Prison.
