Julian Assange no será extraditado a EUA

By Ninian Carter

January 4, 2021 - Un tribunal del Reino Unido dictaminó que el fundador de WikiLeaks Julian Assange no debe ser extraditado a EUA para enfrentar cargos de espionaje tras la publicación de documentos militares y políticos clasificados.

Charges against Julian Assange date back to 2010 and 2011, when thousands of classified documents leaked by U.S. Army whistleblower, Chelsea Manning, were published by Assange's WikiLeaks organisation.

In 2012, Assange fled to the Ecuadorian embassy in London, where he remained in hiding for almost seven years, until his arrest in 2019.

Since then he has been fighting a U.S. extradition request on charges of espionage – facing a possible 175 years in prison.

On January 4, 2021, Judge Vanessa Baraitser is set to deliver her verdict on whether Assange should be extradited to the United States or not.
