Could Julian Assange Be Extradited To The US?


An appellate court in London on Friday overturned a lower court’s ruling from earlier this year and opened the door for Julian Assange to be extradited to the U.S. to face espionage charges.

An appeal is almost certain in a case that has attracted international attention. Assange’s detractors see him as a traitor over his WikiLeaks’ publication of thousands of leaked military and diplomatic documents a decade ago. His supporters see his imprisonment as an affront against the free press.

A lower court judge refused an American request to extradite Assange to the U.S. to face spying charges. A judge said Assange, 50, who is currently being held at London’s high-security Belmarsh Prison, could kill himself if held under harsh U.S. prison conditions.

An attorney for the U.S. government who appealed the decision denied that Assange’s mental health was too fragile to withstand the U.S. judicial system and even assured the court that any sentence handed down could be carried out in an Australian prison.

The appeals will likely end up in the Supreme Court.  

Stella Moris, Assange’s fiancée, told reporters that his legal team would appeal the court’s decision, Reuters reported.

“How can it be fair, how can it be right, how can it be possible, to extradite Julian to the very country which plotted to kill him?” she said. “We will appeal this decision at the earliest possible moment.”

    We need MUCH MORE transparency in our government, not less !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I would NOT worry about what Julian Assange might have divulged, and worry a LOT more about what King O’Biden is doing with China to destroy our country as we speak RIGHT NOW !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a
    forty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.

    Howdy great website! Does running a blog similar to this require a large amount of work?
    I have very little knowledge of programming however I was hoping to start my own blog soon.
    Anyway, if you have any suggestions or techniques for new blog owners
    please share. I know this is off topic however I simply had to ask.
