Julian Assange and partner register intention to get married in prison

Julian Assange and his partner have registered their intention to get married in the prison where the WikiLeaks founder is being held.

Stella Moris said she hoped there would be no further interference in their wedding plans, after the couple previously accused the prison governor and Justice Secretary Dominic Raab of preventing it being held.

She said: “Today Julian and I are finally registering our intention to marry here inside Belmarsh prison. We were originally booked to do so three weeks ago.

“Of course, the circumstances are not ideal but I am relieved that reason has prevailed and I hope there will be no further interference with our marriage.

“This right is written into law. Julian is not charged with any crime in this country, he is not serving a sentence, his imprisonment serves no purpose at all other than to prolong and make his suffering worse.

The couple have been engaged for a number of years and have been trying to get married despite the legal action.

They have two children, sons Gabriel, four, and Max, two.
