Stella Moris, partner of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, says British authorities have so far blocked attempts for her and Assange to marry while he is being held in Belmarsh prison. She is in Glasgow for the U.N. climate summit to raise awareness of his case and highlight WikiLeaks’s work in exposing government and corporate undermining of past climate conferences. As one of the few people allowed to visit Assange in jail, she warns that his condition is rapidly deteriorating. "They are killing him. If he dies, it is because they are killing him," Moris says. "They are torturing him to death."
