Permalink UK Home Secretary Approves Extradition of Assange to US

The Wikileaks founder faces 175 years in prison. The extradition of WikiLeaks co-founder Julian Assange to the US moved a step forward on Friday after British Home Secretary Priti Patel gave the green light to hand the transparency activist over to American custody.

💬 “The UK courts have not found that it would be oppressive, unjust or an abuse of process to extradite Mr. Assange,” the Home Office said. “Nor have they found that extradition would be incompatible with his human rights, including his right to a fair trial and to freedom of expression, and that whilst in the U.S. he will be treated appropriately, including in relation to his health.”

Julian Assange has 14 days to appeal. WikiLeaks called the development a “dark day for Press freedom and for British democracy,” and added that “the decision will be appealed.”
