London High Court Allows Wikileaks Founder Julian Assange to Appeal Ruling in Extradition Fight

The High Court in London said in a Monday decision that Wikileaks founder Julian Assange may appeal a ruling that he can be extradited to the United States. 

Assange is wanted on several espionage charges in the United States, which is pushing for his extradition, The Hill reports

As previously reported by Human Events News, Assange is wanted on 18 counts of conspiring to disclose classified information and conspiring to hack a military computer. The counts relate to the publication in 2010 and 2011 by WikiLeaks of a treasure trove of classified material that shed a bad light on the American campaigns in Iraq and Afghanistan. Assange, who has been held in the United Kingdom’s high-security Belmarsh prison since 2019, has repeatedly defended his work as public-interest journalism. 

Late last year, a British high court ruled that Assange could be extradited to the U.S. However, London’s High Court will now allow him to appeal the case to the United Kingdom’s Supreme Court. 

The Supreme Court, however, must accept it before it moves forward, a process that usually takes around eight weeks.

“Make no mistake, we won today in court,” Assange’s fiancee, Stella Moris, said following the decision. “We will fight this until Julian is free.”
