What’s next for Julian Assange to be handed over to WikiLeaks USA?

A UK court has ordered the extradition of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange to the United States

London: A British court has ruled in favor of deporting WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange to the United States. Julian Assange has been extradited to the United States to face charges of spying for a London court.

The founder of Wikileaks is wanted in the United States for leaking hundreds of thousands of classified documents related to the conflict in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Assange has been trying for years to stop sending himself to the United States. His court struggles for this have come to an end. It is noteworthy that in January 2021, a district judge who ruled in Assange’s case prevented him from being extradited to the United States, saying that if he was extradited to the United States, he would be in danger of committing suicide.

The United States had appealed the ruling. Britain’s Supreme Court ruling on appeal sends Assange to US.

Proponents of her case have been working to make the actual transcript of this statement available online.

What is the background of Julian Assange and what mistakes did he make?

Julian Paul Assange is an Australian journalist, publisher and social activist who started WikiLeaks in 2006.

In 2010, he released various military classified documents, including US attacks on the war in Afghanistan, war crimes, human rights abuses, and espionage. The information he released caused a great stir among the nations of the world.

US military intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning’s leaks continue to gain international attention. The United States has since filed 18 cases against Assange, including spying, and is making a series of efforts to bring him to the United States for trial.

Julian was charged with sexual misconduct, causing him distress. The United States has called for Sweden to be extradited to Sweden for questioning. Subsequently, Julian Assange fled Sweden in 2012 and sought refuge at the Ecuadorian embassy in London.

But at the Ecuadorian embassy in 2019, Jillian Assange, who was arrested by British police, was jailed in London. The United States has demanded that Britain deport Julian Assange for questioning. However, Julian Assange filed a petition in a London court against this.

Assange will now be extradited to the United States as his legal battle over trial, sentencing and appeal against the verdict ends. Assange could face up to 175 years in prison if convicted by the United States.
