Big win for freedom of speech

Sharing is Caring!

  • US wants to put WikiLeaks founder Assange on trial

  • WikiLeaks released US military records, diplomatic cables

  • Court ruling means Assange’s extradition to US on hold

  • Court: US must give assurances he won’t face death penalty

LONDON, March 26 (Reuters) – WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange’s extradition to the United States from Britain was put on hold on Tuesday after London’s High Court said the United States must provide assurances he would not face the death penalty.
U.S. prosecutors are seeking to put Assange, 52, on trial on 18 counts, all bar one under the Espionage Act, over WikiLeaks’ release of confidential U.S. military records and diplomatic cables.
After Britain gave the go-ahead for his extradition last year, Assange’s lawyers in February launched a final attempt in the English courts to challenge that decision.
