    THE Australian lawyer for Julian Assange has written to the Attorney-General, Robert McClelland, asking him to take action against prominent North American figures calling for Mr Assange to be harmed.

    Robert Stary, pictured, has requested that Mr McClelland order the investigation of those who may have broken part 5.4 of the Commonwealth Criminal Code which prohibits a person, here or overseas, deliberately or recklessly causing physical harm or harm to a person's mental health.

    Sources close to Mr Assange have concerns for his mental health due to his rising anxiety that he may be assassinated.

    An adviser to Canada's Prime Minister, Tom Flanagan, has said lightly Mr Assange ''should be assassinated''.

    ''The government should be clear to their American counterparts that threats against Mr Assange's life will be taken seriously by this country,'' Mr Stary said.
