(RoyalPatriot.com )- Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks and an Australian citizen, is currently prosecuted in the United States. Australian Prime Minister Michael Albanese did not call on the United States to stop this prosecution. In a conversation with reporters on Monday, the prime minister gave the impression that he would not intervene in the issue of Julian Assange, even though the British government has given its permission for Assange’s extradition to the United States.
Albanese told reporters that he aspires to head a government that engages in diplomatic and proper interactions with foreign nations. However, Albanese refused to comment on whether or not he had communicated with President Joe Biden over the issue. The comments made by the prime minister came amid ongoing calls from Bobb Carr, a former member of the Foreign Ministry, urging the current administration to press for Assange’s release.
If the Australian public sees an Australian being persecuted in this manner, if they see footage of Assange in chains being taken out on the tarmac of an airport in the United Kingdom to be put on a CIA aircraft and taken to the United States for trial and a lengthy trial, there will be a significant public reaction. A drawn-out trial will be stacked against him, and imprisonment in a very harsh U.S. federal prison will enrage Australians.
Assange has stated that he intends to file an appeal against the decision of the British government to extradite him. The terrible ramifications of this situation for individuals who work in the media were brought to light by the arrested journalist’s wife. She referred to human rights while declaring, “We are not at the end of the road, and we will struggle until justice is served.”
Reporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns this decision on Julian Assange, which represents a failure by the UK government to preserve press freedom and will have dangerous ramifications for journalists worldwide.
According to his wife, Julian Assange was subjected to a strip search and transferred to an empty cell the day his extradition was announced.
According to Stella Assange, the WikiLeaks founder was informed that he was being transferred to an empty cell “for his own security.”
