Julian Assange’s Health Central to Ruling on Extradition to U.S.

LONDON, ENGLAND - OCTOBER 27: Yellow ribbons with messages from supporters of Julian Assange are tied to the railings of the Royal Courts of Justice during an appeal hearing for his extradition to the United States on October 27, 2021 in London, England. The United States, which has charged the Wikileaks founder with espionage, had appealed a January ruling that Assange should not be extradited to the US due to concerns over his mental health and the risk of suicide in a US prison.

“The U.S. government’s unrelenting pursuit of Julian Assange makes it clear that this prosecution is a punitive measure, but the case involves concerns which go far beyond the fate of one man and put media freedom and freedom of expression in peril.”
