Swedish Court Injects Some Sense into the Assange Case
June 6, 2019
By Craig Murray

When, eight years late, the European Arrest Warrant request for Julian Assange was finally put before a Swedish court, the court refused to issue it.

Readers of this blog are amongst the very few people who have had the chance to learn that the original European Arrest Warrant for Julian Assange from Sweden was not issued by any court but by a prosecutor; that this was upheld in the U.K. Supreme Court despite the court’s open acknowledgement that this was not what the U.K. Parliament had intended by the phrase that the warrant must come from a “judicial authority;” and that the law had been changed immediately thereafter so it could not be done again.

Consequently, in seeking a new European Arrest Warrant against Assange, Swedish prosecutors had finally, eight years on, to ask a court for the warrant. And the court looked at the case and declined, saying that the move would be disproportionate. It therefore remains the case that there is no Swedish extradition warrant for Assange. This is a desperate disappointment to the false left in the U.K., the Blairites and their ilk, who desperately want Assange to be a rapist in order to avoid the moral decision about prosecuting him for publishing truths about the neocon illegal wars that they support.

Assange's father reunited with his son in emotional prison visit

Image

The WikiLeaks founder was moved into a medical ward in prison several weeks ago after a sudden and dramatic weight loss due to an undisclosed illness, following his April arrest at the Ecuador embassy in London.

And concern for Assange’s mental state rose when his colleagues reported him unable to communicate with them during a prison visit.

Shipton said his son had undergone a “considerable change” since he last saw him: when they shared a Christmas dinner at the embassy at the end of last year.

Julian Assange extradition case 'outrageous assault on journalism'

Julian Assange's legal team have branded the US extradition case against him "an outrageous and full-frontal assault on journalistic rights", as a court ordered him to face a full extradition hearing next year.

The WikiLeaks founder is fighting being sent to the US to face charges related to the leaking of government secrets.

The case was opened at Westminster Magistrates' Court on Friday.

It came after an extradition request was signed by the home secretary.

By certifying the request on Thursday, Sajid Javid allowed it to be considered by the court.

Full US extradition hearing for WikiLeaks' Assange will take place in February 2020 – UK court
Published time: 14 Jun, 2019 10:30 Edited time: 15 Jun, 2019 08:37

WikiLeaks co-founder Julian Assange will face a new, full US extradition hearing in February that is expected to last five days, Westminster Magistrates' Court in London has ruled.

The hearing date was set after British Home Secretary Sajid Javid revealed on Thursday that he had signed and certified the US extradition order papers.

Assange's lawyer, Mark Summers, said the case represents an “outrageous and full-frontal assault on journalistic rights.''

Responding to the new hearing date outside the court, another lawyer representing Assange, Jennifer Robinson, said that Assange is "in a healthcare ward in Belmarsh Prison due to his ill-health."

The US Justice Department has filed 18 charges against the 47-year-old Australian journalist, including one count of conspiring with Chelsea Manning, the former intelligence analyst and whistleblower, to gain access to the US Pentagon network.
