The case of Assange continues to be in the news, and the whole world is watching. This is not just about the freedom of press, but about the freedoms of all people. This case will become a precedent, and this is the reason for which it’s important that justice is made.

According to the latest reports, a UN expert today expressed concern that the possible extradition and imminent prosecution in the United States of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange could have serious implications for freedom of expression.

“Gathering, reporting and disseminating information, including national security information when it is in the public interest, is a legitimate exercise of journalism and should not be treated as a crime,” said Irene Khan, the Special Rapporteur on Freedom of Expression.

The Australian editor, publisher, and activist is currently awaiting the decision of the High Court in the United Kingdom regarding his appeal against extradition to the United States.

He is facing 17 charges under the 1917 Espionage Act for publishing classified information on the WikiLeaks platform. If found guilty, he could face a maximum sentence of 175 years in prison.
