The mother of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has criticised Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard for not doing enough to save her son who is now been jailed on rape charges.

Christine Assange, who has landed London to visit her son said "I came here to be with my son. I want to see him, I want to see how he is," she said.

She said the Australian government needed to do more to help her son, according to 'The Age' report today.

"There's Julia Gillard opening for Oprah...and my Julian is sitting here in prison.

Is it more important to suck up to the Yanks than to look after your own people?"
