On February 20-21 in London, a panel of two judges of UK High Court will hear Assange’s final bid to appeal against extradition. This two-day public hearing may be the final chance for Julian Assange to prevent his extradition to the United States. If extradited, Assange faces a sentence of 175 years for exposing war crimes committed by the United States in the Afghan and Iraq wars. The upcoming public hearing will be held before a panel of two judges who will review an earlier High Court decision taken by a single judge on 6 June 2023 which refused Mr Assange permission to appeal. His wife and mother of their children Stella Assange will explain how this decisive stage in Mr Assange’s appeals will determine his future and the future of the press. Stella Assange is also calling for an immediate ending to the persecution of the innocent journalist, Wikileaks editor in chief and publisher. Assange’s campaign for freedom is supported by Amnesty International, the National Union of Journalists, Reporters Without Borders and virtually every civil rights, press freedom and journalists’unions in the world.
