Julian Assange cannot be extradited to the US, UK judge rules

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange cannot be extradited to the US, a judge at the Old Bailey has said.

Judge Vanessa Baraitser said she had refused his extradition because it 'would be oppressive' to him.

The Australian activist, 49, faced an 18-count indictment alleging a plot to hack computers and a conspiracy to obtain and disclose national defence information.

Good, I'm glad the British judge has good judgement of what is going on. I'm also so disappointed about the Australian government not helping their very own citizen more. I can understand that there's a lot of American influence in Australian politics but to act like America's lapdog. We need to be wary of the propaganda role America foreign policy plays.

Alexander Simpson
Alexander Simpson:
It’s travesty given the publication of these documents, including video footage was to expose criminal acts being covered up by abusing classifications that hides these criminal acts from the public for a period of time that ensured the perpetrators get away with their actions... When one considers Julian took time and effort to ensure the published documents did not endanger lives.. The truth is, it made for a lot of red faces and awkward questions being asked including politicians being exposed for lying to the public...

At long last sanity seems to have won, thank goodness for a judge with the common sense and courage to go against the corrupt and spineless politicians who have allowed this man to suffer for so long. We are ruled by groups of greedy men and woman in positions of power who have no moral compass to guide them to be honest and truthful, they are a total disgrace to us all.
