Tomorrow is an incredibly important day, not only for the free press but for the whole world as well. Britain’s High Court will announce the verdict in Julian Assange’s case.

Tomorrow, Julian Assange will receive verdict

According to the latest reports on X, tomorrow Julian Assange’s case will receive a verdict from the High Court in Britain.

Here is the post shared on X by WikiLeaks:

In January 2021, district judge Vanessa Baraitser blocked Julian Assange’s extradition from the UK, citing concerns about his mental health.

This decision was made after the organization DeclassifiedUK noted that extradition would be oppressive. However, the US was given the opportunity to appeal the decision, and Chief Justice Ian Burnett ultimately overturned Baraitser’s ruling. Burnett accepted US assurances about Assange’s treatment, but it’s worth noting that he was a close friend of the British minister who orchestrated Assange’s seizure in April 2019.

Jennifer Robinson, Assange’s lawyer in Britain since his legal troubles began, said:

“The US did not dispute the medical findings, so the medical conclusion and evidence still remains the same, which is, if he’s extradited to isolating conditions, he will be caused to commit suicide.”

The US, however, offered “assurances” that they would not place him under those kinds of prison conditions.

“It’s a conditional assurance,” Robinson says, “which means at any point, once he’s in US prison, the intelligence services could decide that he’s done something that justifies the application of those prison conditions.”

This is hugely worrying, she added.

“You’ve got agencies which tried to kidnap and kill him that would have the power to put him under those kinds of isolating conditions without any real ability of us to judicially review it. And he would be stuck in those conditions.”

Recently, I reported that the Wall Street Journal just dropped an article about the “legal drama” that they call Julian Assange.

The US Department of Justice is considering whether to allow WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange to plead guilty to a lesser charge of the mishandling of classified material to potentially end the legal proceedings, according to The Wall Street Journal.

Their article begins by stating that “the U.S. Justice Department is considering whether to allow Julian Assange to plead guilty to a reduced charge of mishandling classified information, according to people familiar with the matter, opening up the possibility of a deal that could eventually result in his release from a British jail.”

Stay tuned for more news about the subject.
