The Court’s finding confirms the terrible personal toll on Julian Assange and the grave risk to his life should he be extradited to the United States. But regrettably it fails to address central issues like freedom of speech, media freedom and the US claim to extraterritoriality.
Julian Assange must now be freed and allowed to return to Australia. And the Australian Government must rule out any possibility of his extradition from this country should he return home.
I also call on President Trump and President-Elect Biden, to let this be the end of the matter. Julian Assange should be lauded as a hero, not a villain.
