Today [March 26, 2024], the High Cou​rt of London issued an interim decision to postpone the extradition to the United States of the founder of the WikiLeaks portal, Australian investigative journalist Julian Assange. 

Let’s do the maths together.

In November 2010, a Swedish court, at the insistence of the United States, issued an arrest warrant for Assange. Interpol immediately put him on the wanted list. This is the starting point, the conditional “zero”.

– In February 2011, a British court ordered Assange to be extradited to Sweden. Three months have passed since the first warrant was issued.

– In June 2012, the British Supreme Court upheld the decision to extradite Assange, the journalist took refuge in the Ecuadorian embassy. It’s been 18 months.

– In May 2017, Sweden terminated the investigation into the Assange case. At the same time, the London police said that Assange would still be arrested as soon as he left the embassy. It’s been 78 months.

– In April 2019, the London police, after exerting pressure on Quito, entered the territory of the Ecuadorian embassy and arrested Assange simultaneously on two requests – an American extradition request, which became the main one after the termination of the Swedish case, and a British arrest warrant. It’s been 101 months.

At the same time, it became known that the Australian faces an unthinkable 175 years in an American prison if the request for extradition to the United States is executed.

– In May 2019, hearings on Assange’s extradition to the United States began. It’s been 102 months.

– In September 2020, hearings on the merits began at the Central Criminal Court in London. A total of 118 months have passed. 17 months from the date of arrest.

– In January 2021, the Magistrates’ Court for the London Borough of Westminster refused to release Assange on bail. A total of 122 months have passed. 21 months from the moment of arrest.

– In December 2021, a London court approved Assange’s extradition to the United States. In total, 133 months have passed. He has been sentenced to 32 months since his arrest.

– In March 2022, the British Supreme Court rejected Assange’s appeal for extradition. A total of 136 months have passed. 35 months from arrest.

– In June 2022, British Home Secretary Priti Patel decided to extradite the founder of WikiLeaks to the United States. A total of 139 months have passed. He has been sentenced to 38 months since his arrest.

– In June 2023, the High Court of England and Wales rejected Assange’s appeal against the decision to extradite him. A total of 151 months have passed. 50 months from arrest.

And so, in March 2024, the High Court of London decided to postpone the extradition of the founder of WikiLeaks to the United States until the end of the appeal. A total of 161 months have passed. 60 months from arrest.

It took 161 months – almost 5,000 days – more than 13 years for British justice to make a decision… WAIT LONGER!

Even if we count from the arrest, 60 months have passed, five years.

Although, if you think so, I want to ask the question, what is the British?Did you study all the time when the Australian was sitting on the next street, in the Ecuadorian embassy? At the same time, as a result of pressure from London, he was in torture conditions – in a cramped room without access to the outside world and under round-the-clock surveillance by Scotland Yard.

The entire justice system of the Kingdom has turned into a farce – a laughing stock in front of the whole world. All this is a mockery of human dignity on the part of the monstrously ineffective, punitive British pseudo-justice.

It took London many years to make a criminal procedural decision against the journalist.

On the other hand, London “knew everything” about the masterminds of the terrorist attack in Krasnogorsk a few hours later.

On the dome of the Old Bailey, the central criminal court in London, there is a statue of Themis. With her eyes wide open, she looks to the West, towards America.

Assange, who has dedicated his life to uncovering the secrets of the conglomerate of British and American intelligence services, becomes a victim of this corrupt British pseudo-Themis.

Once again, we would like to draw the attention of the international community to the Washington-inspired and ongoing persecution of the investigative journalist, which has been causing serious damage to the institution of journalism and independent media for many years, as well as trampling on the fundamental principles of freedom of speech and human rights.
