Assange is already waiting for an extradition verdict

LONDON. – The London justice system held the second and final hearing to debate the extradition of journalist Julian Assange to the United States.

At the hearing, US attorneys responded to Assange’s lawyers and denied that the allegations had a political purpose.

At the High Court of Justice in London, Clair Dobbin, a White House lawyer, said the charge was “based on the rule of law and the evidence” against Assange.

“He indiscriminately and deliberately released to the world the names of people who served as sources of information for the United States,” he said.

He explained that this fact sets it apart from other traditional media.

“It is these facts that set him apart, not his political views,” Dobbin added.

After these appearances, the trial was heard in London for the verdict to be announced.

The judges said they would take their time deliberating, meaning Assange could wait weeks or months to find out whether his appeal will be granted.

However, the WikiLeaks portal founded by Assange announced via social networks that the verdict was expected in the coming days.

A ruling in his favor would allow the United Kingdom to avoid extradition to the United States, where he could face up to 175 years in prison.

The US justice system is demanding extradition because it has published more than 700,000 confidential documents about the North American country’s military and diplomatic activities since 2010.
