Baraitser’s full support for the U.S. indictments, which confirmed the criminalisation of journalism, will not be a subject of the appeal, unless Assange’s lawyers launch their own appeal of that part of the judgement. The U.S. is only appealing Baraitser’s decision to deny extradition on health grounds. The judge with conflicts of interest in the case, Lady Emma Arbuthnot, now sits on the High Court, the very court that will hear the U.S. appeal.
Please join us outside the US Consulate to protest against this centuries greatest miscarriage of justice. Friday night we will hear the decision. May the British Justice System step up and respect the Rule of Law. They must free Julian Assange!
