Final Extradition Orders For Julian Assange Submitted To Priti Petal For Approval

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange is now at the mercy of home secretary Priti Patal after his extradition orders were sent to her office for approval.

Assange is wanted by the US government for violating the Espionage Act after spreading photos and other classified documents on his sight Wikileaks supplied by various sources including former National Security Agency (NSA) systems analyst Edward Snowden and former US Army soldier Bradley Edward Manning.

Julian Assange would be expected a final high court hearing if his extradition orders are approved by the home secretary.

One stipulation the UK wants the US to be bound to is not having Assnage executed, as spying and espionage in America is a hanging crime.

Assange for the meantime is held at Belmarsh Prison.

Hacktivists and Whistleblowers, including Snowden and Manning, have condemned the UK in being complicit in trying to extradite Julian Assange to the US.

Protests in London and outside Belmarsh have taken place in support of the Wikileaks founder after he was kicked out of the Ecuadorian Embassy in 2019.
