It has been just revealed by the BBC that Joe Biden is considering requests to drop the charges against Julian Assange. Check out the latest important details below.

Biden considers dropping Assange charges

BBC notes that US President Joe Biden has said that he is considering Australia’s request to drop the prosecution of WikiLeaks’ founder Julian Assange.

Recently, the parliament of the country passed a measure endorsed by PM Anthony Albanese, which calls for the return of  Assange to his home country, Australia. The United States is seeking Assange’s extradition from the UK on criminal charges related to the disclosure of military records. However, Assange has denied these charges and claims that the leaks were an act of journalism.

When asked on Wednesday whether he had a response to Australia’s request, Biden said: “We’re considering it.”

Assange, 52, is being held in Belmarsh prison and is fighting his extradition in the UK courts.

In a post on X, formerly Twitter, directed at Biden, Assange’s wife said: “Do the right thing. Drop the charges.”

Not too long ago, the UK’s High Court decided that Julian Assange has the right to appeal his extradition to the US. But, on the other hand, they also stated that the fact that the CIA plotted to murder him is irrelevant.

Assange has been incarcerated in Belmarsh Prison for five years due to the crime of publishing information that exposed war crimes. However, this is not about espionage.

The mainstream media also published the same information but has not faced any consequences. This is about suppressing anyone who questions the narrative and publishes information that the government disapproves of or does not benefit from.

It’s also worth noting the fact that the High Court said that the fact that the CIA plotted to murder Assange is irrelevant.

Edward Snowden also believed that this is something that is worth mentioning:

Stay tuned for more important details about the case.
