Julian Assange is the founder of WikiLeaks, a nonprofit media organization that facilitates anonymous leaks to journalists and the public.
The U.K. High Court accepted U.S. “assurances” of humane treatment if Julian Assange is extradited.
The Biden administration has thus far ignored pressure from human rights groups to drop the charges.

“The factual basis for this case has completely fallen apart,” says human rights attorney Jennifer Robinson.
Several civil liberties groups had called on Biden to halt the extradition request issued under Trump.
