st Assange extradition hearing postponed until September AT EARLIEST-WikiLeaks Day 6
The second part of Julian Assange's US extradition hearing has been postponed until at least September, WikiLeaks has confirmed, after parties returned to court in the UK for a brief 20-minute hearing to fix a new date.
Judge Vanessa Baraitser said at the procedural hearing on Monday that, having heard from the prosecution and defense, it was clear that a July date was unworkable.

And that is now day two it seems already:

Judge Warns Julian Assange to Shut Up After Shouts of ‘Nonsense’ at Extradition Hearing

https://www.thedailybeast.com/judge-warn...on-hearing

In a few weeks or months, Judge Vanessa Baraitser will rule on whether Julian Assange can be taken to the United States to face a string of incredibly serious espionage charges, so it’s probably a good idea for him to stay in her good graces.

But on Tuesday, the second day of the WikiLeaks founder’s extradition hearing in London, which was delayed for months by the coronavirus pandemic, Baraitser was forced deliver a warning to Assange that he will be removed from court for good he can’t keep his thoughts to himself while witnesses are delivering their evidence.

RE: Assange extradition hearing postponed until September AT EARLIEST – WikiLeaks
Ahead of Assange's extradition hearing, which began in London today and is expected to last for several weeks, both prosecutors and the WikiLeaks founder's defense lawyers submitted "skeleton arguments" to the court that lay out in new detail the central arguments they plan to make in Assange's extradition case. The defense document in particular reveals Assange's most complete response yet to the US indictments against him, expanding on an opening statement his attorneys released in February and including snippets of still unpublished written testimony from a long list of witnesses, from free speech advocates and media scholars to four doctors who have assessed Assange's mental health. Assange's lawyers point to what ..


they describe as flaws in the US indictment against their client and the political nature of the prosecution. The document also includes the warnings of psychiatrists who have diagnosed Assange with Asperger's, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder, all of which they say could lead him to harm himself if he's extradited into the American judicial system.

"I think they have a lot of ammunition," says Tor Ekeland, a well-known hacker defense attorney who has followed Assange's case and helped to successfully defend British hacker Lauri Love from extradition in 2018. "The most salient things for me are the freedom of speech and the right to publish information that is critical to the public’s ability to understand and evaluate what the government is doing in their name."

"The indictment breaks all legal precedents."

MARK FELDSTEIN, JOURNALISM PROFESSOR

On top of those free speech arguments, the newest details in the defense's argument serve as evidence of Assange's declining mental health. Michael Kopelman, a psychiatrist who interviewed Assange several times last year, testified that he observed in Assange signs of suicidal risk including "loss of sleep, loss of weight, a sense of pre-occupation and helplessness as a result of threats to his life, the concealment of a razor blade as a means to self-harm and obsessive ruminations on ways of killing himself." He writes at one point that Assange expressed having suicidal thoughts "hundreds" of times a day, and that multiple potential suicide implements were confiscated from Assange in prison.

The defense goes on to quote Kopelman pointing out that the WikiLeaks founder has shown signs of preparing for the end of his life, such as seeking Catholic absolution and creating a will. “I reiterate again that I am as certain as a psychiatrist ever can be that, in the event of imminent extradition, Mr. Assange would indeed find a way to commit suicide,” Kopelman writes. Sondra Crosby, another psychiatrist who saw Assange during his time in the Ecuadorean embassy adds, “It is my strong medical opinion that extradition of Mr. Assange to the United States will further damage his current fragile state of health and very likely cause his death. This opinion is not given lightly.”

A third psychiatrist diagnosed Assange with Asperger's syndrome, noting that the condition would make it more difficult for him to manage life in a US prison. But the prosecutors counter that yet another doctor who interviewed Assange twice while in prison came to the conclusion that he was not a significant suicide risk. The prosecution writes that "neither mental health problems, nor Asperger syndrome prevented Assange’s solicitation of, and orchestration of, the leaking of materials from the highest levels of government and state agencies, apparently on a global scale."
