Assange’s father to beg Biden for son’s freedom

John Shipton, father of detained WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, says he’ll return to the United States to ask President Joe Biden to drop legal action against his son.

A man who allegedly murdered his own son over the weekend has been held in custody after facing Lismore Local Court yesterday.

John Christopher Gibson, 61, has been charged with murder after his 29-year-old son was found dead in the pair’s Barrow Lane home with stab wounds to his neck on Saturday night.

Mr Gibson did not appear in court and his lawyer did not apply for bail, which was formally refused.

The matter will return to court on January 17 next year.
