Earlier this week, a London court sentenced Julian Assange to 50 weeks in prison for breaching bail by going into hiding in the Ecuadorian embassy in 2012.
UN Rights Experts said Friday that the famous whistleblower is being kept in Belmarsh Prison "as if he were convicted for a serious criminal offense".
