Assange’s fiancée reacts to US’s ’assurances’ regarding conditions should Assange be extradited

Don’t Extradite Assange Campaign
Royaume-Uni

10 juil. 2021 —

After the news that a UK court has given US prosecutors limited permission to appeal January’s ruling that Julian Assange should not be extradited, Julian Assange’s fiancee took to twitter to debunk the claims.

Julian Assange’s fiancée Stella Moris said:

“Reports about US undertakings are grossly misleading. On any given day 80,000 prisoners in US prisons are held in solitary confinement. Only a handful are in ADX/under special administrative measures. ADX is just one of dozens of self-described supermax prisons in the United States. The US government also says it may change its mind if the head of the CIA advises it to do so once Julian Assange is held in US custody.

“With regard to the supposed concession of allowing Julian to serve jail time in Australia, it was always his right to request a prisoner transfer to Australia to finish serving his sentence because he is an Australian. It is no concession at all. There are existing agreements between the US and Australian authorities. What is crucial to understand is that prisoner transfers are eligible only after all appeals have been exhausted. For the case to reach the US Supreme Court could easily take a decade, even two.

“What the US is proposing is a formula to keep Julian in prison effectively for the rest of his life. The only assurance that would be acceptable would be for the Biden Administration to drop this shameful case altogether, once and for all. He should not be in prison for a single day, not in the UK, not in the United States, not in Australia–because journalism is not a crime.
