LONDON: The fiance of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange on Saturday condemned his “grotesque” detention in Britain, after visiting him in jail for the first time in eight months.

Stella Moris, 38, went to Belmarsh prison in south London on Saturday with the couple’s two young sons. She said she had not seen Assange since he made a court appearance in January. “The situation is utterly intolerable and grotesque, and it can’t go on,” Moris said after the visit, describing Assange as “struggling”. The UK authorities are “driving him to deep depression and into despair”, she added.
