Assange Wins A Right to Appeal

A court in the U.K. has granted Julian Assange the right to appeal his extradition to the United States! Assange is on trial for exposing war crimes from the U.S and U.K. governments. No one was ever punished for the war crimes exposed by Assange. It has been a decade-long episode of shoot the messenger.

It feels like a small win because Assange will remain in a high-security prison while he argues his appeal, but for Assange, any win is big. He had been facing immediate extradition to the United States, a country that tried to assassinate him when he was in the Ecuadorian embassy.

Lawyers for the U.S. tried to assure the U.K. court that Assange would not be given the death penalty if convicted but the courts were not convinced. You should not get a second chance to not kill someone.

Former Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa was allowed to live free while fighting his extradition to Ecuador in London. Why can’t Assange do that?
