Faces further court hearings in relation to his impending extradition on February 20 and 21 at the Royal Courts of Justice in London.


Conservative MP David Davis spoke of his opposition to extradition saying “The successful extradition of Julian Assange would effectively criminalise investigative journalism as espionage. It would set a legal precedent allowing the prosecution of anyone who breaks the duty of silence on classified American information and state sponsored crime.


On Julian Assange creating WikiLeaks, John Pilger noted that Julian was "brave in starting a project that he knew would get him in trouble, the best kind of trouble. The kind of trouble that informs people, that respects their right to know about those who govern them, those that make war in their name...when Julian started WikiLeaks Julian knew it would be a rocky was about seeking justice through letting people know what was going on."
