Priti Patel Signs Final Extradition Orders For Wikileaks Founder Jullian Assange

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange's extradition orders were approved by the home secretary Priti Patel, meaning the Australian activist will be extradited to the United States to face spying and other espionage charges.

Julian Assange gained US infamy after his site published classified documents and images sent to him by former NSA engineer Edward Snowden and former Army soldier Bradley Manning, resulting in the Australian being charged with violating the Espionage Act and various charges of exposing state secrets.

He hid inside the Ecuadorian embassy in London for years until US pressure forced the embassy staff to hand him over to British authorities who transferred Assange to Belmarsh Prison.

Activists held protests outside Belmarsh Prison, the Ecuadorian embassy where he had hidden previously, Downing Street, Westminster, and the US embassy calling for the approval to be overturned.

Who claim that his extradition to the US was: "A spit in the face of the free press and whistle blowers everywhere.

Priti Patel has sent Assange to the US to face unjust charges like a lamb to the slaughter, she should be ashamed of herself".
