#AceBreakingNews – UK judge formally approves Julian Assange’s extradition to the US

7

UK District Judge Paul Goldspring has formally approved journalist and WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange’s extradition to the US to face charges about information that he published through WikiLeaks more than a decade ago.

The order, which was issued at Westminster Magistrates’ Court, follows the UK Supreme Court preventing Assange from appealing a lower court ruling that approved his extradition last month. However, Assange’s legal team can still appeal today’s ruling.

The final decision will now be sent to UK Home Secretary Priti Patel. Assange’s lawyers have four weeks to make submissions to Patel and can also seek an appeal to the high court.

Mark Summers, a lawyer for Assange, told the court that Assange’s legal team had “serious submissions” to make.

The US’s charges against Assange stem from WikiLeaks’ 2010 publication of leaked material which was provided by whistleblower Chelsea Manning. The leaked materials showed US military members firing on civilians, revealed details about civilian deaths during the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, and more.

US government prosecutors claim that Assange unlawfully helped Manning steal the materials and have levied espionage and computer misuse charges against him.

However, his supporters and lawyers argue that the case against Assange is politically motivated, that he was acting as a journalist when publishing the materials, and that the publication of the materials is protected under the First Amendment of the US Constitution.

Journalist Glenn Greenwald, who worked with US National Security Agency (NSA) whistleblower Edward Snowden to expose secret US and UK government surveillance programs, described the case against Assange as “by far the worst case of journalistic persecution in the West.”

Julian’s wife, Stella Assange, has also noted that the charges he is facing under the controversial 1917 Espionage Act “don’t allege ‘spying'” and are instead for “receiving, possessing and communicating true information from a journalistic source to the public.”

After Julian’s extradition was formally approved, Stella Assange said in a statement outside the court:

“The UK has no obligation to extradite Julian Assange to the United States. In fact, it is required by its international obligations to stop this extradition.Boris Johnson and Priti Patel, don’t extradite Julian to the country that conspired to murder him. Boris Johnson and Priti Patel can stop this at any time, they can stop it today. They can stop this nightmare today and return Julian to his family. They can do the right thing and enforce Article 4 of the US and UK Extradition Treaty which prohibits extraditions for political offenses.

“Right now, they’re in breach of their own treaty. This is a political case and with the signature of the magistrate this now passes squarely into the political domain. Free Julian Assange.”

Assange has been detained in the UK’s Belmarsh prison since 2019after the Ecuadorian President withdrew Assange’s diplomatic immunity and London police entered the Ecuadorian embassy to arrest him on a separate charge. He faces a sentence of up to 175 years in prison if extradited.

Major human rights and press freedom groups have called for Patel to reject Assange’s extradition to the US.

Agnès Callamard, Amnesty International’s Secretary General, said the extradition of Assange would be “devastating for press freedom and for the public, who have a right to know what their governments are doing in their name.”

Callamard added: “Publishing information that is in the public interest is a cornerstone of media freedom. Extraditing Julian Assange to face allegations of espionage for publishing classified information would set a dangerous precedent and leave journalists everywhere looking over their shoulders.”

Freedom of the Press Foundation described the case as “a direct threat to the rights of ALL journalists in the U.S.” and called for the US Department of Justice (DOJ) to “drop the charges before permanent damage to press freedom is done!”

BREAKING: Julian Assange Marries Stella Moris in Belmarsh Prison Ceremony

#AceBreakingNews says according to The Guardian News Report: WikiLeaks founder granted permission to wed partner, who fought back tears outside the prison, saying ‘What we’re going through is inhuman’ By

Julian Assange and his partner, Stella Moris, got married on Wednesday at Belmarsh high-security prison in south-east London.

https://footballnewskh.com/world/wikileaks-assange-gets-married-in-prison/33021/

The WikiLeaks founder, 50, was granted permission last year to marry Moris – with whom he has two children – at the prison where he has been held since 2019 after the US took legal action to extradite him to face trial on espionage charges.

Moris arrived at the jail wearing a floor-length corseted lilac dress designed by Dame Vivienne Westwood and Andreas Kronthaler, and an elaborate veil embroidered with messages from friends.

After the wedding, Moris made an emotional speech to a crowd outside prison. Fighting back tears and wearing her wedding dress, she said: “I’m very happy but I’m very sad … I wish he were here … What we’re going through is inhuman.”

She added: “He’s the most amazing person in the world and he should be free. But our love will carry us through.”

Supporters said the couple were allowed six guests, including Assange’s two brothers and his father.

Moris said she and Assange had been locked in a dispute with the Ministry of Justice and prison authorities, who she said rejected their proposed witnesses because they were journalists. A proposed photographer was also denied access because he worked for the press, even though they would all have attended in a private capacity, she added.

https://skywaveradiolancs.uk/index.php/2022/03/23/julian-assange-marrying-stella-moris-at-hmp-belmarsh/

In an article for the Guardian, Moris described the wedding venue as “the most oppressive high-security prison in the country”.

“The prison states that our wedding picture is a security risk because it could end up on social media or the press,” she wrote. “How absurd. What kind of security threat could a wedding picture pose?”

Belmarsh regularly permits photography, according to Moris, who added that the far-right activist Tommy Robinson and other prisoners had been interviewed on camera when ITV filmed inside the prison. Moris added: “But for Julian, who isn’t even serving a sentence, there appears to be a different set of rules …They fear people will see Julian as a human being.

A Prison Service spokesperson said: “All weddings in prisons must meet the requirements outlined in the Prison Service policy.”

They said photography for weddings in prisons was facilitated by prison staff in line with established national policy on photographing prisoners, and that policy made clear the governor could block images if it was believed they would be shared publicly – which could compromise prison security. As a result, photographs were taken by staff, they said.

Earlier this month, Assange moved a step closer to a US trial on espionage charges after the UK’s highest court refused to hear his appeal against extradition. He was attempting to appeal against a judgment by the high court in December that ruled he could be extradited after assurances from the US authorities with regard to his prison conditions there.

The supreme court said it had refused permission to appeal “as the application didn’t raise an arguable point of law”. The case is expected to be formally sent to the home secretary, Priti Patel, to approve the extradition.

(LONDON) High Court Report: #Wikileaks founder Julian #Assange has won the right to ask the Supreme Court to block his extradition to the US #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Jan.25: The High Court ruled on Monday he had an arguable point of law that Supreme Court justices may want to consider: The ruling means Mr Assange can petition the UK’s highest court for a hearing, stalling any extradition from the UK for now: He is wanted in the US over the publication of thousands of classified documents in 2010 and 2011.

#AceDailyNews says according to latest High Court News Report: Julian Assange can ask Supreme Court to consider extradition case By Dominic Casciani
BBC Home and legal correspondent

Lord Burnett, the Lord Chief Justice, said:

Mr Assange’s case had raised a legal question over the circumstances in which judges received and considered assurances from the US about how he would be treated in prison.

But Mr Assange has no guarantee of a hearing despite being able to petition the Supreme Court. In practice this means his case may take many more months to come to a conclusion.

Stella Moris, Mr Assange’s fiancee and mother of his two young sons, claimed the High Court ruling as a victory but said “we are far from achieving justice in this case”. 

Speaking outside the court, she said: “Let’s not forget that every time we win, as long as this case isn’t dropped, as long as Julian isn’t freed, Julian continues to suffer. 

“For almost three years he has been in Belmarsh prison and he is suffering profoundly.” 

She added: “Our fight goes on and we will fight this until Julian is free.”

Watch: “As long as Julian isn’t freed, he continues to suffer” – Mr Assange’s fiancee Stella Morris reacts

The Wikileaks documents revealed how the US military had killed hundreds of civilians in unreported incidents during the war in Afghanistan, while leaked Iraq war files showed the 66,000 civilians had been killed and prisoners tortured by Iraqi forces.

The US says the leaks broke the law and endangered lives, but Mr Assange says the case is politically motivated.

In January last year, a lower judge who deals with extradition requests ruled that while the US had a case to prosecute Mr Assange for alleged offences relating to the mass-hacking of government systems, he could not be sent from the UK to stand trial – because there was no guarantee that American authorities could safely care for him.

The High Court then reversed that decision for Assange saying that the US had provided good enough assurances that proved Mr Assange could be safely cared for.

Amid fears that he would be subject to extremely harsh solitary confinement conditions, lawyers for Mr Assange argued his fragile mental health meant the US would find it impossible to stop him taking his own life.

But in a short ruling on Monday morning, Lord Burnett said there was now a legal question over how those assurances had been provided as part of the appeal, but not beforehand.

“Assurances [over treatment] are at the heart of many extradition proceedings,” said Lord Burnett’s statement. He said the High Court refused permission to appeal – but whether or not the issue needs to be heard in the Supreme Court “is a matter appropriately for its decision”.

Mr Assange’s lawyers now have 14 days to make the application to the Supreme Court.

The Committee to Protect Journalists cautiously welcomed the High Court ruling and said if Mr Assange were to be prosecuted in the US it “would set a deeply harmful legal precedent”.

(LONDON) LATEST: Julian #Assange has been granted permission to marry his partner Stella Moris in Belmarsh prison, the BBC has been told #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Nov.13: The prison service said Mr Assange’s application was “considered in the usual way by the prison governor”………….Ms Moris told PA she was “relieved that reason [had] prevailed”……………She added: “I hope there will be no further interference with our marriage.”

#AceDailyNews says Good News says KIndness & Love❤️ according to BBC News Report: #Wikileaks Julian #Assange has been given permission to marry his partner in Belmarsh Prison: The #Wikileaks founder and Ms Moris have two sons together, who she said were conceived while he was living inside London’s Ecuadorean embassy.

A Prison Service spokesperson said: “Mr Assange’s application was received, considered and processed in the usual way by the prison governor, as for any other prisoner.”

Inmates are entitled to apply to be married in prison under the Marriages Act 1983 and where applications are granted, they must meet the full costs of the marriage, with no taxpayer help.

In an interview with the Mail on Sunday last year, Ms Moris, a South African-born lawyer, revealed that she had been in a relationship with Mr Assange since 2015 and had been raising their two young sons on her own.

In a video posted on Wikileaks’ YouTube account, she said she had met Mr Assange in 2011 when she joined his legal team.

Ms Moris added that she had visited him in the embassy almost every day and had “got to know Julian very well”. 

The couple fell in love in 2015 and got engaged two years later.

Ms Moris said that Mr Assange had watched both boys being born via video link and they had visited their father at the embassy.

Mr Assange, 50, continues to fight extradition to the US on espionage charges.

He is wanted in the US on allegations of conspiracy to obtain and disclose national defence information, following Wikileaks’ publication of hundreds of thousands of leaked documents relating to the Afghanistan and Iraq wars.

The publications include the release in April 2010 of footage showing US soldiers shooting and killing civilians from a helicopter in Iraq.

The Australian has been in Belmarsh Prison since 2019, when he was carried out of the Ecuadorian embassy in London by police and arrested for breaching his bail conditions.

He had been in the embassy since 2012, avoiding extradition to Sweden, where he faced sex offence allegations. He has always denied those and they were eventually dropped.

(LONDON) LATEST: Julian Assange Show Trial Report: #WikiLeaks co-founder and his fiancée, Stella Moris have opened legal proceedings against the UK justice secretary and a prison chief, demanding that they be allowed to get married in Belmarsh Prison #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Nov.08: We are suing because creepy elements of the UK government are illegally blocking and delaying our marriage by effectively giving the US government veto power,” Moris tweeted on Sunday……

#AceDailyNews says according to RT News Report: Assange & Fiancee Sue want to marry: Assange, who is locked up in Belmarsh, and Moris have been engaged for five years and have two children. Since May, they have been asking prison officials to arrange a wedding ceremony, but have received no reply:

Assange & fiancée sue ‘creepy elements of UK government,’ and here’s why

They have now brought legal action against Justice Secretary Dominic Raab and Belmarsh Governor Jenny Louis on Friday for preventing them from getting married:

Julian Assange’s extradition show trial now boils down to exactly how suicidal he is, proving this has never been about justice

Illegally blocking our marriage is part of a disgusting pattern of conduct attacking Julian’s family life, issuing orders to steal our infant’s DNA, assigning a full time agent to target me & my mother. It seems there is no length of depravity these creeps are not willing to go. https://t.co/Dd7EIIdkth— Stella Moris #FreeAssangeNOW (@StellaMoris1) November 7, 2021

“A wedding would be a moment of happiness, a bit of normality in insane circumstances,” Moris told the Daily Mail. “Julian needs things to hold on to because daily life is a struggle for him in Belmarsh and there is so much uncertainty about his future.”

“Our love for each other is the one thing which has carried us through and being married would be another bulwark in our emotional defences,” Moris said.

Assange is fighting an extradition request from the US, where he is charged with revealing state secrets, including the footage of American soldiers killing civilians in Iraq. He spent seven years hiding in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London until he was evicted in 2019.

The UN special rapporteur on torture, Nils Melzer, has repeatedly expressed concern over Assange’s declining health, and said he has shown symptoms “typical for prolonged exposure to psychological torture.”

Attain ~

ALL that a man achieves and all that he fails to achieve is the direct result of his own thoughts. In a justly ordered universe, where loss of equipoise would mean total destruction, individual responsibility must be absolute. A man’s weakness and strength, purity and impurity, are his own, and not another man’s; they are brought about by himself, and not by another; and they can only be altered by himself, never by another. His condition is also his own, and not another man’s. His suffering and his happiness are evolved from within. As he thinks, so he is; as he continues to think, so he remains.

A strong man cannot help a weaker unless that weaker is willing to be helped, and even then the weak man must become strong of himself; he must, by his own efforts, develop the strength which he admires in another. None but himself can alter his condition.

It has been usual for men to think and to say, “Many men are slaves because one is an oppressor; let us hate the oppressor.” Now, however, there is amongst an increasing few a tendency to reverse this judgment, and to say, “One man is an oppressor because many are slaves; let us despise the slaves.”

The truth is that oppressor and slave are co-operators in ignorance, and, while seeming to afflict each other, are in reality afflicting themselves. A perfect Knowledge perceives the action of law in the weakness of the oppressed and the misapplied power of the oppressor; a perfect Love, seeing the suffering, which both states entail, condemns neither; a perfect Compassion embraces both oppressor and oppressed.

He who has conquered weakness, and has put away all selfish thoughts, belongs neither to oppressor nor oppressed. He is free.

A man can only rise, conquer, and achieve by lifting up his thoughts. He can only remain weak, and abject, and miserable by refusing to lift up his thoughts.

Before a man can achieve anything, even in worldly things, he must lift his thoughts above slavish animal indulgence. He may not, in order to succeed, give up all animality and selfishness, by any means; but a portion of it must, at least, be sacrificed. A man whose first thought is bestial indulgence could neither think clearly nor plan methodically; he could not find and develop his latent resources, and would fail in any undertaking. Not having commenced to manfully control his thoughts, he is not in a position to control affairs and to adopt serious responsibilities. He is not fit to act independently and stand alone. But he is limited only by the thoughts, which he chooses.

There can be no progress, no achievement without sacrifice, and a man’s worldly success will be in the measure that he sacrifices his confused animal thoughts, and fixes his mind on the development of his plans, and the strengthening of his resolution and self-reliance. And the higher he lifts his thoughts, the more manly, upright, and righteous he becomes, the greater will be his success, the more blessed and enduring will be his achievements.

The universe does not favour the greedy, the dishonest, the vicious, although on the mere surface it may sometimes appear to do so; it helps the honest, the magnanimous, the virtuous. All the great Teachers of the ages have declared this in varying forms, and to prove and know it a man has but to persist in making himself more and more virtuous by lifting up his thoughts.

Intellectual achievements are the result of thought consecrated to the search for knowledge, or for the beautiful and true in life and nature. Such achievements may be sometimes connected with vanity and ambition, but they are not the outcome of those characteristics; they are the natural outgrowth of long and arduous effort, and of pure and unselfish thoughts.

Spiritual achievements are the consummation of holy aspirations. He who lives constantly in the conception of noble and lofty thoughts, who dwells upon all that is pure and unselfish, will, as surely as the sun reaches its zenith and the moon its full, become wise and noble in character, and rise into a position of influence and blessedness.

Achievement, of whatever kind, is the crown of effort, the diadem of thought. By the aid of self-control, resolution, purity, righteousness, and well-directed thought a man ascends; by the aid of animality, indolence, impurity, corruption, and confusion of thought a man descends.

A man may rise to high success in the world, and even to lofty altitudes in the spiritual realm, and again descend into weakness and wretchedness by allowing arrogant, selfish, and corrupt thoughts to take possession of him.

Victories attained by right thought can only be maintained by watchfulness. Many give way when success is assured, and rapidly fall back into failure.

All achievements, whether in the business, intellectual, or spiritual world, are the result of definitely directed thought, are governed by the same law and are of the same method; the only difference lies in the object of attainment.

He who would accomplish little must sacrifice little; he who would achieve much must sacrifice much; he who would attain highly must sacrifice greatly.
