Julian Assange is allowed to marry in prison

Julian Assange remains in a maximum security prison in the UK. There he can now marry his fiancée.

London – Wikileaks founder Julian Assange is allowed to marry his partner Stella Moris in prison in Great Britain. “Julian and I now have permission to get married in Belmarsh Prison,” Moris wrote on Friday (November 12th, 2021) on Twitter. She was relieved but upset that legal action was necessary to “stop the illegal interference with our fundamental right to marry.” Moris also said she hopes there will be no further interference with her marriage.

Wikileaks said on Thursday (11/11/2021) that the couple had taken legal action after they were “essentially prevented from marrying”. Stella Moris is now talking about the British government having given in. Julian Assange’s application for the wedding in prison was processed in the same way “as with any other prisoner,” said a spokesman for the correctional authority. Prison inmates in the UK have had the right to seek marriage in prison since 1983. If the application is accepted, however, you will have to bear all costs yourself.

Julian Assange and Stella Moris have known each other since 2011, when she became a lawyer for the Wikileaks founder, as she explains in a video on the YouTube account of the disclosure platform. During Assange’s stay at the Ecuadorian embassy in London, Moris visited Assange almost every day and got to know him well. They have been in a relationship since 2015 and engaged since 2017, explained Stella Moris in an interview with the British newspaper Mail on Sunday 2020.

Julian Assange and Stella Moris have two sons who were born during Assange’s stay at the Ecuadorian embassy, reports the BBC.
