The High Court should affirm the district court’s denial of extradition of Julian Assange to the U.S.
The report cited conversations with more than 30 former U.S. officials.
The U.S. will be allowed to make “assurances” that Assange would not be held in oppressive prison conditions.
Daniel Hale is the first person sentenced under the Espionage Act on Biden’s watch and he probably won’t be the last.
Biden has paid lip service to a free press. Will he follow through on this ideal in relation to Assange?
“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.
Most of Judge Baraitser’s 132-page decision actually supports the Trump administration’s case against Assange.
Legal representatives from the United States plan to appeal the decision issued on Monday.
Julian Assange’s extradition was blocked not due to press freedom, but rather concern over prison conditions.
