Curious magistrate, as good as nothing is known about her, now I am curious.
She might just - maybe,pure guesswork -be the daughter of physician Michael Baraitser and playwright Marion Baraitser, who moved to UK from South Africa in 1977 with their four young kids. https://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:xoPvM-gy0LsJ:https://genmedhist.eshg.org/fileadmin/content/website-layout/interviewees-attachments/Baraitser,%2520Michael.pdf+&cd=1&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=au
- Good sleuthing, Terje. Craig Murray agrees that Vanessa Baraitser is the "daughter of dissidents from apartheid":
- "A member of the Assange family remarked to me at the end of week one that she seems very lazy, and thus delighted to accept any arguments that reduce the amount she needs to do. I think it is different to that. I think there is a corner of the mind of this daughter of dissidents from apartheid that rejects her own role in the torture of Assange, and is continually urging 'I had no choice, I had no agency'. Those who succumb to do evil must find what internal comfort they may."--Patrick Haseldine (talk) 22:50, 2 March 2020 (UTC)
