WikiLeaks Founder Julian Assange not on Bail
Australian WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange should not be released on Bail in England. That was determined by a court in London.
His lawyers had filed for Bail because their client in British prison would be at risk of infection with the coronavirus.
He is in prison because the United States has asked for his extradition and the London court has yet to decide.
The US authorities intend to prosecute him, among other things, for publishing classified material about the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
The Wikileaks founder should not wait for that extradition case in freedom, because he previously ran away while on parole.
He went into hiding in the Ecuadorian embassy in London in 2012 to prevent surrender to Sweden. Last year, Ecuador was removed from the embassy by the British police.
