Among those supporters are film director Ken Loach and journalist John Pilger.
Khan said via Twitter that she had offered to bail out Assange and added that she did so because she believes in “our universal right to be told the truth.”
“I was just in court to provide surety in case bail was granted to Julian Assange of wikileaks,” she tweeted.
“I make no judgment of Julian Assange as an individual as I have never met him,” she posted later, followed by, “I offered my support, as I believe that this is about the universal right of freedom of information and our right to be told the truth.”
Loach and Pilger also appeared in court today to offer bail money for the troubled WikiLeaks founder.
Assange was denied bail after surrendering to British authorities on sexual assault charges.
