WikiLeaks Lawyer Says Julian Assange Faces Additional Charges in “Political Persecution”

HeadlineJul 29, 2020

A lawyer for WikiLeaks said Monday the United States is preparing to bring more charges against Julian Assange, who already faces up to 175 years in prison on espionage and hacking charges. Assange is currently facing an extradition trial in London. This is his lawyer, former Spanish Judge Baltasar Garzón.

Baltasar Garzón: “Julian Assange has been the subject of political persecution in which all of the rules of due process have been broken, false evidence has been used, illegal evidence has been used, and the procedure in the United States has been totally contaminated as a result.”
