Julian Assange’s Trial Extended for Extradition Ruling

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has been compelled to wait further to find out if he can bring an appeal against his extradition to the US, in a verdict by the British High Court on Tuesday, March 26.

According to the ruling, the decision on Assange’s appeal has been extended to May 20 with the Court claiming its intent is to seek “assurances” from the US.

“If those assurances are not given, then leave to appeal will be given and there will then be an appeal hearing,” a summary of the judgment said.

Stella Assange, wife of Julian Assange, has said that she is “astounded” by the court’s decision to delay her husband’s appeal.

“What the courts have done has been to invite a political intervention from the US,” she said. “I find this astounding.”

The court order on Tuesday is part of a longstanding battle which commenced after Assange’s Wikileaks exposed the US war crimes in Iraq and Afghanistan, by leaking classified documents.
