America’s Assange Deadline

The United States issued a “non-assurance” that they will treat Julian Assange well if they get their approval to extradite him from the U.K.

Last month, a court ruled that Assange could not be extradited to the U.S. unless the U.S. provides assurances that he will be well-treated while in custody. Stella Assange, Assange’s wife and lawyer, says that this assurance “does nothing to relieve [their] family’s extreme distress about his future–his grim expectation of spending the rest of his life in isolation in US prison for publishing award-winning journalism. The Biden Administration must drop this dangerous prosecution before it is too late.”

So how will the U.K. government take this “non-assurance”? The United States has admitted that it tried to assassinate Assange while he was in the Ecuadorian embassy but now they say that he’ll be safe. What sane person would believe that? If the courts reject this bogus assurance, it will allow a new appeal because the court ruled that he “has a real prospect of success on 3 of the 9 grounds of appeal.”

He should be freed while the courts decide! It is not protocol to detain people during extradition trials!
