Is Julian Assange’s fight for freedom complete?
Julian Assange’s extradition to the United States has been blocked by the United Kingdom making his fight for freedom far from complete. The editor and founder of Wikileaks have spent over a decade in a prison or in the Ecuador embassy in London. He fought hard but his request to face criminal charges in the United States was turned down by the judge.
His lawyers have decided to fight for bail and hopefully, convince the jury that he should be released. An extradition lawyer, Daniel Sternberg spoke about the issue and said,
“He has a very poor history,’ that’s all prosecutors need to say, Prison authorities would consider him to be a flight risk. He’s likely to be in Belmarsh for the time being.”
The Australian prime minister, Scott Morrison said that Julian Assange could return to Australia once his legal issues came to an end.
