Assange’s decision is a blow to democracy and journalism

UK court authorizes Julian Assange’s extradition to US for espionage

A UK appeals court on Friday opened the door to Julian Assange’s extradition to the United States by overturning a lower court ruling that the mental health of the WikiLeaks founder was too fragile to withstand the system of American criminal justice.

The High Court in London ruled that U.S. assurances were sufficient to ensure Assange would be treated humanely and ordered a trial judge to send the extradition request to the Home Secretary for review. The Home Secretary, who oversees law enforcement in the UK, will make the final decision whether or not to extradite Assange.

Incredibly, Nicky Hager’s astonishing testimonies given in the TV series Against Assange have been totally ignored by the New Zealand media.

New Zealand’s most famous investigative journalist testifies in the journalism lawsuit of the century and all you hear are crickets in New Zealand?

It stopped being about Justice a long time ago.

What a bitter day for democracy and journalism!
