Today, a public hearing will be held at London’s High Court on February 20-21, where two judges will review a previous ruling that refused Assange permission to appeal.

Elon Musk has recently posted on X, raising awareness of Assange’s case.

People on X and from the whole media are supporting Assange:

The other day, we revealed the fact that a UN torture expert is urging the UK to halt Assange’s extradition to the US.

UN torture expert urges UK to halt Julian Assange’s extradition to the US

Here is the tweet that WikiLeaks shared on X:

The UN’s Special Rapporteur on Torture, Alice Jill Edwards, has urged the UK Government to stop the potential extradition of Julian Assange to the US. She has requested the British authorities to review Assange’s appeal, taking into account the serious concerns that he may face torture or other forms of mistreatment or punishment if extradited.

“Julian Assange suffers from a long standing and recurrent depressive disorder. He is assessed as being at risk of committing suicide. In the United States, he faces numerous charges, including under the Espionage Act of 1917 for alleged unlawful releases of diplomatic and other cables and documents via WikiLeaks. If extradited, he could be detained in prolonged isolation while awaiting trial, or as an inmate. If convicted, he could be sentenced to up to 175 years in prison,” Edwards said.
