out of respect for spanish justice, not english mustard, nor US crap shoot...

house of lies...

Former employees of a security firm accused of spying on Julian Assange at Ecuador’s embassy in the UK will be allowed to give evidence to his extradition case anonymously after claiming they would be at risk of kidnapping or poisoning.


Anonymity was granted to two former employees of UC Global after a hearing at the Old Bailey in London was told they feared that its director and owner, David Morales, or others connected to him in the US, could seek to harm them.

Judge Vanessa Baraitser said she would permit their identities to remain anonymous out of respect for a Spanish court that had done the same as part of a case in which they are involved.

Hearing a submission for anonymity from the WikiLeaks founder’s legal team on Tuesday, she asked if the witnesses required protection “from the director of UC Global, or from the American state, or from whom do you think?”

Mark Summers QC responded that they required protection mainly from Morales, but also from “those associated with him”. He said that Morales, who had been detained in Spain and subsequently bailed, had military training and that a firearm with the serial numbers removed had been found at one of his addresses.

James Lewis QC, acting for the US government, did not contest the submission for anonymity but said that checks would be carried out on the witnesses, whose evidence would be read into the record. He added that the US case was likely to be that their evidence was “wholly irrelevant”.

The Guardian is a bit shy in trying to obtain ASSANGE'S FREEDOM... This rag that profited from Assange's information (while screwing up in the process) should demand JUSTICE according to real justice, not about the hot English mustard that is burning the bad taste of this case. EVERY MEDIA IN THE WORLD WORTH THEIR SALT SHOULD DEMAND FREEDOM FOR ASSANGE, The Guardian included.

Now, let me know: who would poison or kidnap the Spanish guards who spied on Assange?... And please don't tell me supporters of justice for Assange.... Crackpots? CIA agents? The Russians? The Queen of England? MI6? The Skripals?

 

indecent fudges...

It has to be said that the women leading the case against Assange are complete sadists. If they were fully "Justices" with a decent mind, Assange would be free. Fudge Arbuthnot and Fudge Vanessa Baraitser are the pits of madness, and will be remembered forever as the torturers of Assange, in the most unjust case of English law ever.

awaiting awaiting awaiting injustice...

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange will have to wait until early next year to find out if he will be extradited to the United States to face charges including espionage, after his hearing finished at a London court on Thursday.

Key points:

  • Assange is accused of conspiring to hack US Government computers and violating espionage law over WikiLeaks releases
  • He has been in prison in the UK since his arrest at the Ecuadorian embassy in London in April 2019
  • If convicted of the charges, he faces up to 175 years in prison

US authorities accuse Assange, 49, of conspiring to hack government computers and of violating an espionage law in connection with the release of confidential cables by WikiLeaks in 2010-2011.

Judge Vanessa Baraitser told London's Old Bailey Court at the conclusion of hearings from witnesses in the case that she would deliver her verdict on January 4.

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange will have to wait till early next year to find out if he will be extradited to the United States to face charges after his hearing finished at a London court on Thursday.

US authorities accuse Assange, 49, of conspiring to hack government computers and of violating an espionage law in connection with the release of confidential cables by WikiLeaks in 2010-2011.

Judge Vanessa Baraitser told London's Old Bailey Court at the conclusion of hearings from witnesses in the case that she would deliver her verdict on January 4.

"Unless any further application for bail is made, and between now and the 4th of January, you will remain in custody for the same reasons as have been given to you before," she told Assange, who was sitting behind a security screen at the back of the court.

The judge has previously denied Assange bail over fears he is a flight risk.

Assange jumped bail in 2012 when he sought asylum at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, where he ended up staying for seven years before being evicted and subsequently arrested.

He has been in a London prison since April 2019.

She also told Assange that he will have to appear via video link to the courts every 28 days between now and her ruling.

Assange's defence team have asked for another four weeks to submit their closing argument to the judge.

That will be followed two weeks later by the closing argument of lawyers acting on behalf of the US Government, and a subsequent response a few days later from Assange's team.

Assange's lawyers argue that the charges are politically motivated, that his mental health is at risk, that conditions in US prisons breach Britain's human rights laws, and that he and his lawyers were spied on while he was in the Ecuadorian embassy.

The legal team representing the United States have countered that many of those arguments are issues which should be addressed in a trial, and have no bearing on extradition.

Why is justice "taking so long"? One wonders if the "British court to give verdict on Julian Assange's extradition to US in January" is awaiting either Julian Assange's death in prison, or a change of the US presidential political landscape which may change the "Fudgetices" verdict... It won't. Delay is part of the tactic to prevent Julian to be free...  Either way, the "British court" which has a name to it, especially that of Vanessa Baraitser, is in the pocket of the US inhuman and sadistic war machine. The USA only exist as "the most powerful nation on this planet" by lying and being deceitful in its intents and actions.

 

It's time for the "British court" system to release Julian Assange, under the Magna Carta or whatever proper fair and juste laws. Failing this, if the present Queen Whatshername the Second and her son Charlie-in-Waiting do not intervene to immediately demand Assange's freedom, their reigns will be forever tainted and shamed as the infamous subservient knaves to a despotic and mad America.
