Another one of Julian Assange`s attorney`s has died.
` One of the UK’s most respected international criminal lawyers who was representing Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has died after being hit by a train in West Hampstead.
Married father of two John Jones, QC, worked at renowned legal chambers, Doughty Street and died last Monday morning. Police say they are not treating the death as suspicious.
The 48-year-old barrister has been described as “a giant in his field” by colleagues, who said that his death is “a monumental loss to the cause of international justice and human rights.”
He was part of a team of lawyers acting to prevent the extradition of Julian Assange – holed up in the Ecuadorian embassy for four years – whose case is currently being heard by the UN Working Group on Arbitrary Detention.`
