Dr John Jiggens (Bay FM) presents interviews with Assange’s partner Stella Morris, his father, John Shipton, and a speech given by Tasmanian Greens Senator Peter Whish Wilson.

In the Wikileaks interview with Stella Morris she says that she has two children with Assange. According to Morris, a guard at the Ecuadorian Embassy tried to obtain used nappies so authorities (CIA?) could check the DNA to see if the baby was Assange’s.

It is very hard to accurately extract the baby’s DNA from such a sample because there are so few of the cells needed .

Remember that the forensic analysis of Lindy Chamberlain’s car said it was Azaria’s blood on the floor. The sample turned out to be rust. But this didn’t help Lindy Chamberlain. She was convicted of the manslaughter of her child.

I do not think Stella Morris should have felt obligated to make public such personal information. What happened is private i.e. between her and Assange.

John Shipton is Julian Assange’s father who is in London to support Julian in the extradition hearings. He spoke with Dr John Jiggens about Julian’s recent bail application and he explained how Stella Morris’s decision to out herself as Julian’s partner had been forced by Judge Bareitser.

This week Julian Assange’s partner Stella Morris revealed that the couple have two children. Ms Morris had been part of Assange’s legal team who regularly visited him in the Ecuadorian embassy and they began an affair in 2015. She said starting a family was “a deliberate decision” to give Assange a light at the end of the tunnel while he was a prisoner in the Ecuadorean embassy. This excerpt is from a WikiLeaks interview with Stella Morris, accompanied by her young children, where she talks about the hard decision to reveal herself as Julian Assange’s partner.

Like the UK government and the Swedish government, the Australian government has done little to protect Julian Assange, even tho he is an Australian citizen. This week Green’s senator Peter Whish Wilson was a rare Australian voice in defence of Julian Assange.
