UK Court Approves Extradition Order to US
Going against corporate mainstream media propaganda and government narratives, Daniel Assange, the son of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange issued a post to set the record straight.
Today, a UK court approved an extradition order, which would force Assange to be sent to the US for trial. Assange has the right to appeal.
Amnesty International’s Secretary General Agnès Callamard critized the ruling on the grounds that it places Assange at risk, and also represented a broader threat to press freedom.
“The charges against Assange should never have been brought in the first place,” said Callamard. “It is not too late for the US authorities to set things right and drop the charges.”
Assange is wanted in the US on espionage charges and faces an 18-count indictment accusing him of conspiring to hack military databases to publish classified information about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. If convicted, Assange could receive a 175-year jail sentence, although the US government has said he would likely face a sentence of between four and six years.
