  1. is there someone who can clarify? The latest I could find was from a Dec 19 2019 article by Sputnik:
    After brief negotiations, the trial judge, Vanessa Baraitser, and Assange’s lawyers agreed on the dates of the upcoming hearings to take place on 14 and 23 January, as well as 7 and 24 February. The dates of the hearings in February are subject to change.
    Jan 14
    Jan 23
    Feb 7
    Feb 24

    predating that and maybe invalid are dates from Wikileaks site

    Press Release Regarding Julian Assange’s Case Management Hearing
    21 October 2019
    The case management dates were set as follows
    7 February 2020 Deadlines for bundle submission by both sides

    11 February 2020 Deadline for defence skeleton argument

    18 February 2020 Deadline for prosecution skeleton argument

    25 February 2020 Extradition hearing begins.


    Is there someone who can clarify for certain? Thanks.

    • Also, having looked I think we are in the same situation as you are.

      I have two references for the 14th and 23rd of January.
      Two for the 7th of Feb but with subject to change.
      The 11th and 18th are only referenced by Wikileaks and appear to be more arbitrary deadlines than court dates.
      24th Feb I have a single Sputnik reference with subject to change.
      25th is a Wikileaks reference but from the same old page so may be outdated by the Sputnik one.

      Again, all those are from the updated page at https://iriscafe.net/julian-assange-court-dates/ I have updated this page to point to that and will try and keep it updated as time goes on.
