WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, who remains incarcerated in the Belmars High Security Prison, has finally received permission from the authorities to marry his partner Stella Morris, according to British media.

Last week, Mr. Assange and Ms. Morris filed a lawsuit against Justice Minister Dominique Raab and the prison director for obstructing their marriage.

According to The Guardian, the ceremony will take place inside the prison. According to The Sun, the wedding may take place in December with other detainees invited.

The couple was held accountable five years ago. He has two children.

The Australian was arrested at the Ecuadorian embassy in London on April 11, 2019 and sentenced to fifty weeks in prison for violating the terms of his provisional release in 2012. He had sought refuge at the Ecuadorian embassy in the British capital where he was facing prosecution for sexual abuse, a case that has now been filed.

Mr Assange feared the case was a pretext for his extradition to the United States, where he is wanted as he faces criminal charges for leaking hundreds of thousands of classified diplomatic and military documents that uncovered war crimes in Iraq and Afghanistan. If convicted and sentenced in the United States, he faces up to 175 years in prison.

Last month, Amnesty International called on the US authorities to close the case and the British authorities to release him (24853735).
