'I can't think properly:' Assange disoriented as court rejects delay for extradition proceedings

'I can't think properly:' Assange disoriented as court rejects delay for extradition proceedings | 21 Oct 2019 | With his supporters rallying outside the court building, Julian Assange showed signs of exhaustion and psychological torment as his lawyer made a bid to delay US extradition proceedings -- but the London court ruled against him. Cleanly shaven and dressed in a navy suit, the WikiLeaks co-founder appeared before Westminster Magistrates Court on Monday to seek the postponement of an extradition hearing scheduled for February -- but the impact of six months behind bars at London's maximum security Belmarsh Prison have clearly taken a toll. Reports from inside the court suggest that Assange, who shot to international prominence for revealing US war crimes, even struggled to say his own name and date of birth. He reportedly held back tears as he told the court that he couldn't "think properly." His lawyer argued that the US government had attempted to kidnap and cause harm to Assange, and said he would need more time to compile evidence for the case.
