Assange says he should be released on bail because of coronavirus.

https://www.rawstory.com/2020/03/julian-assange-loses-bid-to-be-bailed-over-coronavirus/

Baraitser pointed out that the 48-year-old, who followed proceedings via videolink, had already violated a bail order when he fled to the Ecuadorian embassy in 2012.

At that time, Swedish authorities were attempting to extradite him over sexual assault claims that were later dropped.

Assange’s lawyer, Edward Fitzgerald, said there was currently no COVID-19 case at Belmarsh but 100 prison officers were off work and there was a “very real risk — and the risk could be fatal”.

1. Better yet, maybe he should release the key for that "insurance file"

2. Why would he be any different from any other prisoner?

4. They're all trying this now

Maddoff, Weinstein, probably Cosby too.

3. Well put him in isolation next to Weinstein then.

Easy way to take care of that.
