[A BETTER TRANSLATION WILL APPEAR SOON!]. Liora Lazarus participated in a webinar 5.2. together with i.a. the Norwegian lawyers Mads Andenæs and Eva Joly. It emerged in the webinar that there are several violations of Assange's human rights: there are violations of the law on freedom of expression, freedom from torture, arbitrary deprivation of liberty and freedom of movement.

"When Judge Baraitser believes that Julian 'could leave the embassy' at any time 'where he sat for seven years, she is wrong," Andenæs stated. He referred to the widow of peace prize winner Liu Xiaobo who was prevented from leaving his home for eight years. Dozens of threatening civilians surrounded Liu Xia (59) as soon as she set foot outside her house.
