USA + UK vs. Assange: 4th Jan 2021 - Extradition Verdict

BREAKING ! : Judge DENIES the extradition of Julian Assange !

The US is appealing the decision.

☞ Full judgement available here

S01E03 - The Empire Has No Clothes

The show trial that has been Julian Assange's extradition hearing has so far unfolded in two acts:

  • Act One - The Set Up (Woolwhich Crown Court, London - Febuary 24-28th 2020),
  • Act Two - The Confrontation (The Old Bailey, London - September 7th October-1st 2020).

Now, Act Three - The Resolution…in which History is written. Jan 4th 2021 : as the UK breaks away from Europe, will it brazenly spurn its Convention on Human Rights by ruling in favour of extraditing Assange to the US, where he faces up to 175 years in a supermax prison for revealing war crimes? Will the UK be complicit in the jailing of a publisher revealing public interest information, and hence set a precedent for anybody needing to hold power to account?

The judgement is scheduled to be pronounced on Monday Jan 4th. 2021 at 10am GMT at London's Old Bailey courthouse.
