... I have not yet read anyone mention, significantly, that Murray was also told to surrender his passport. This effectively prevents him from giving evidence in a critical trial in Spain re the violation of Assange’s right to privacy which he had been on for.
One report writes,
Retaining Murray's passport was specifically intended to prevent him giving evidence in support of Assange. The judges initially proposed holding his next hearing on May 19 to prevent him travelling.
He commented that what he found “most shocking” was “the peculiar determination of the judges to make sure that, during the three weeks we have to lodge the appeal, I am not allowed to go to Spain to testify in the criminal prosecution for the CIA spying on Assange's legal team.”
