Julian Assange’s (49) partner, Stella Moris (38), hopes the government in Washington will give in to the tug-of-war over the extradition of the Wikileaks founder.
In January, a court in London rejected the US application for the extradition of Julian Assange, 49, citing his compromised mental health.
However, native Australians were not released because Washington applied for an appeal. It is still unclear whether the application will be granted.
Conviction in the US could mean a sentence of 175 years
The US judiciary accuses Assange of stealing and publishing secret material from US military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan together with whistleblower Chelsea Manning (33). He put the lives of US informants in danger, so the allegation.
His supporters, however, see him as an investigative journalist who brought war crimes to light. For years, Assange had evaded arrest by escaping to the Ecuadorian embassy in London. In America, if convicted, he faces a sentence of up to 175 years. (SDA)
