    Julian Assange Wins Right To Challenge US Extradition


    Julian Assange: WikiLeaks founder allowed to appeal extradition from UK to US

    May 20, 2024


    * Assange has been fighting extradition to US for 13 years

    * UK court grants full appeal over free speech arguments

    * Legal battles set to go on for months longer

    LONDON, May 20 (Reuters) - WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was given permission on Monday to appeal against extradition to the United States after arguing at London's High Court that he might not be able to rely on his right to free speech in a U.S. court.

    The Australian-born Assange, 52, is wanted in the U.S. on 18 charges, nearly all under the Espionage Act, relating to WikiLeaks' mass release of secret U.S. documents - the largest security breaches of their kind in U.S. military history.

    The High Court had in March granted him provisional permission to appeal on grounds that he might be discriminated against as a foreign national, but invited the U.S. to submit assurances.

    Has anyone ever explained how a citizen of another country can commit treason against this one?

    This is just like the Stormy Daniels farce. The "crime" isn't even a crime. The only difference is, Trump is benefitting from the one, while the other is causing Assange real harm.
