“Your decision [on Monday] changes everything and it certainly changes any motive to abscond,” stated Mr Fitzgerald. “On any view… [Mr Assange] would be safer isolating with his family in the community, subject to severe restrictions, than if he were in Belmarsh which has, very recently, had a severe outbreak…(of coronavirus). He wishes to live a sheltered life with his family.”
