Assange – Judge boosts US extradition bid – watch reaction from Assange’s partner and John Pilger

The United States given a boost in its bid to extradite Julian Assange, who is in prison in the UK.  A High Court judge ruled the US government can be given more grounds to appeal against that decision.

There were protests outside the court in his support of freedom for Julian Assange.

The High Court scheduled a date to hear full appeal arguments for October 17 and 18.

​​In July, Britain’s High Court granted the US government a permission to appeal.  Based on an earlier decision by a lower court judge that Assange could not be sent to the United States to face charges.  This due to concerns over his mental health and potential risk of suicide in the US prison system. ​​

Wikileaks founder faces seventeen charges under the Espionage Act.  Plus one under Computer Fraud and Abuse Act in the US. Assange could get a sentence of 175 years in prison, if convicted. ​ ​​

Julian Assange held in near-solitary confinement in London’s HMP Belmarsh.​
