Extradition of Assange to the US delayed

Assange’s fate still uncertain: No extradition for now

British justice has asked the United States for new guarantees regarding the treatment of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange before granting his extradition. The British judges have given three weeks to the American authorities to provide these guarantees, as Assange is facing charges for a massive leak of confidential documents.

The U.S. is being asked to ensure that Assange can benefit from the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which protects freedom of expression. If the guarantees are not presented within the three-week deadline, Assange will be able to appeal against his extradition, which was accepted by the London Government in June 2022.

There have been calls for President Joe Biden to drop the charges against Assange, as his health has been deteriorating during his time in prison. His defense argues that the trial against him is political and that extradition would endanger his health and life. Assange’s lawyers argue that he is being prosecuted for journalistic practices of obtaining and publishing information. The U.S. government argues that Assange knowingly published names of individuals who served as sources for the U.S.

The court will have to decide whether the guarantees provided by the U.S
