Australia is not barred from deporting Assange to the United States – Belgium

(Belka) Australia will not challenge the extradition of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange to the United States and has confidence in the British judiciary. This was stated by the Australian Finance Minister.

Westminster Magistrates’ Court in London yesterday ordered the extradition of Australian citizen Assange to the United States. In the United States, he faces charges of leaking classified files to US military and diplomatic missions, particularly in Iraq and Afghanistan. “We are confident in the independence and integrity of the UK justice system,” Treasury Secretary Simon Birmingham told the ABC today. The Australian government will not oppose deportation, he said. If convicted, Julian Assange faces up to 175 years in prison. He is currently being held at Belmarsh High Security Prison in the UK. His lawyers have until May 18 to appeal. Otherwise, Assange will be deported within 28 days of the issuance of an executive order by Home Minister Priti Patel. (Belgium)
