On Thursday 24 Feb 2011 it is likely Assange will be taken from Woolwich court. This was purpose built for the Provisional IRA. Assange will be taken via a tunnel into Category A Belmarsh Prison. The IRA were kept in this prison. People accused of Islamic Jihad are presently kept there. The Great Train Robber, Ronnie Biggs, was there.
Assange will be placed in a special secure unit (SSU) or if they have gone now he will be put in solitary – it is still there. Assange was in solitary at Wandsworth.
Fr . Martin Newell, who lives with me at Giusepp Conlon House, was held there ‘on remand’ after disabling the nuclear convoy vehicle in 2000.
Martin gave a speech about Belmarsh outside the Assange hearing.
No doubt Assange’s lawyers will wish to appeal the decision for extradition.
The British government’s lawyers will again oppose bail at the request of the US administration.
Assange will not go to Sweden.
He will be handed directly over to the US and extradited from Britain.
The Swedish extradition is just a holding operation while the Grand Jury in Virginia gets it shit together by breaking Manning or concocting evidence
The guy with aspergers who hacked in to the Pentagon was extradited recently after 18 months – 2 years of appeals.”
