This just in from the cutting room floor 21/02/2022: 

#AceDailyNews says according to Breitbart Washington Post: Joe Biden Cancels Trip Home to Delaware, Agrees to Meet Again with Putin if He Does Not Invade Ukraine

President Joe Biden canceled last-minute plans on Sunday to return home to Delaware as negotiations with Russian leader Vladimir Putin continue.

At around 2:30 p.m. Sunday afternoon, the White House announced that Biden would leave in the evening to return to his home in Delaware for Presidents’ Day, even though officials said Friday the president would remain at the White House for the weekend.

Biden appeared anxious to return home, but roughly an hour later, his plans were canceled.

A White House official told reporters “a family-related issue” prompted the brief schedule change but that the president would remain in Washington, DC, as originally planned.

The White House announced later Sunday evening that Biden had agreed to meet with Putin as long as he does not invade Ukraine.

“President Biden accepted in principle a meeting with President Putin following that engagement, again, if an invasion hasn’t happened,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki said in a statement to reporters, expressing hope that a diplomatic effort could keep Russia from invading.

On Friday, Biden said he was convinced that Putin had made the decision to invade Ukraine within days.

But Psaki’s White House statement indicated some ambiguity on the decision and the timing.

“We are also ready to impose swift and severe consequences should Russia instead choose war,” she wrote. “And currently, Russia appears to be continuing preparations for a full-scale assault on Ukraine very soon.”

After meeting with world leaders in Munich, Vice President Kamala Harris voiced her concerns about a likely war in Europe, threatening Putin and Russia with sanctions if they invade Ukraine.

“I mean, listen, guys, we’re talking about the potential for war in Europe,” she told reporters Sunday. “I mean, let’s really take a moment to understand the significance of what we’re talking about.”

WASHINGTON: FCC REPORT: Establishes Task Force to Prevent Digital Discrimination

#AceNewsReport – Feb.09: The Federal Communications Commission has set up a cross-agency task force to promote equal access to broadband, chair Jessica Rosenworcel said.

#AceSecurityDesk says the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act directs the FCC to adopt rules prohibiting internet service discrimination based on income, racial or ethnic composition, and other factors determined relevant by the agency. The task force will be comprised of several FCC bureaus, according to a Tuesday announcement FCC PDF News

For Immediate Release

CHAIRWOMAN ROSENWORCEL ANNOUNCES CROSS-AGENCY TASK FORCE TO PREVENT DIGITAL DISCRIMINATION
FCC Announces Leadership Team to Oversee Agency Wide Effort to Address Digital Discrimination

WASHINGTON, February 8, 2022—Federal Communications Commission Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel today announced the formation of a cross-agency task force that will focus on creating rules and policies to combat digital discrimination and to promote equal access to broadband across the country, regardless of zip code, income level, ethnicity, race, religion, or national origin. D’wana Terry, Special Advisor to the Chairwoman and Acting Director of the Office of Workplace Diversity, will lead this agency wide effort in collaboration with Sanford Williams, Special Advisor to the Chairwoman and Deputy Managing Director in the Office of the Managing Director and Alejandro Roark, Chief of the Consumer and Governmental Affairs Bureau, with additional support from other Commission bureaus and offices.

“This work will touch almost every part of the agency and it’s why I’ve asked D’wana Terry to lead this effort from my office. D’wana has held senior leadership positions within teams that will be critical to this effort including the Wireline Competition Bureau, the Wireless Telecommunications Bureau, and the Consumer and Governmental Affairs Bureau. With support from Sanford Williams and Alejandro Roark, as well as the support of every Bureau and Office at the agency, I have every confidence that D’wana and her team will ensure that we properly take on what Congress has asked of us,” said Chairwoman Rosenworcel. “Addressing digital discrimination and redlining is a critical piece to living up to our standard of equal access to the infrastructure needed for 21st century success—no matter who you are or where you live. Your zip code should not determine access to broadband—which this pandemic has proven is a must have, just like electricity or water.”

Per the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, the FCC is tasked with several directives to combat digital discrimination and redlining. Specifically, the Commission must adopt final rules to facilitate equal access to broadband service that prevents digital discrimination and promotes equal access to robust broadband internet access service by prohibiting deployment discrimination based on the income, racial or ethnic composition, and other agency determined relevant factors of a community. Additionally, the cross-agency Task Force to Prevent Digital Discrimination will oversee the development of model policies and best practices states and local governments can adopt that ensure ISPs do not engage in digital discrimination. Lastly, the FCC will revise its public complaint process to seek feedback more prominently from consumers who may be facing digital discrimination in their communities. In accordance with the law, these collective initiatives must be completed by November 2023.

WASHINGTON: ICE/HSI Murder Report: Arrest of 10-Human-Guatemalan-Smugglers

#AceNewsReport – Feb.07: An investigation by U.S. Immigration and Custom Enforcement (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), HSI Transnational Criminal Investigative Unit (TCIU), Guatemalan National Police (PNC), and Guatemalan Prosecutor for Illicit Migrant Trafficking led to the arrest of 10 Guatemalan nationals tied to the January 2021 murders of 19 foreign nationals in a human smuggling event in Tamaulipas, Mexico.

#AceDailyNews ICE/HSI News Report: US-Guatemala investigation leads to the arrest of 10 human smugglers with ties to the murder of 19 foreign nationals headed for the US

“This joint transnational operation targeting a major human smuggling organization shows the importance of both governments collaborating to apprehend the individuals responsible and hold them accountable for transporting these noncitizens enroute to the United States, which ultimately led to their deaths,” said HSI acting Regional Attaché for the Northern Triangle Carlos Gamarra. “Hopefully, the results of these high-level arrests can bring some justice to the victims’ families.”

On Jan 28, HSI Guatemala City along with HSI TCIU, Guatemalan Military, Guatemalan National Police (PNC) Special Operations Group, and Guatemalan Prosecutor for Illicit Migrant Trafficking executed 19 search warrants and arrested ten Guatemalan nationals for violations of foreign law related to human smuggling, money laundering, and obstruction of justice. The arrests were part of a joint investigation by HSI Guatemala City and Mexico City, TCIU, and Government of Guatemala counterparts into the “Coronado/Miranda” human smuggling organization operating out of the Department of San Marcos, Guatemala.

This case was initiated from a Jan 2021 event where 19 foreign nationals were murdered in a human smuggling event in Tamaulipas, Mexico, in attempt to reach the United States. Sixteen of those killed were Guatemalan nationals. Seizures included both foreign and US currency at approximately $203,000 USD, five vehicles, sixty-one illegal gambling machines, one firearm, ammunition, and various electronic devices.

HSI is a directorate of ICE and the principal investigative arm of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), responsible for investigating transnational crime and threats, specifically those criminal organizations that exploit the global infrastructure through which international trade, travel, and finance move. HSI’s workforce of over 10,400 employees consists of more than 7,100 special agents assigned to 220 cities throughout the United States and 80 overseas locations in 53 countries. HSI’s international presence represents DHS’s largest investigative law enforcement presence abroad and one of the largest international footprints in U.S. law enforcement.

ICE encourages anyone who suspects human smuggling to report it to local law enforcement. Tips can also be submitted to ICE anonymously online at ice.gov/tipline or by phone at 866-347-2423.

Norman of the Milwaukee Police Department (MPD) in announcing the capture of Octaviano Juarez-Corro.

#AceDailyNews FBI News Report: Juarez-Corro was added to the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list on September 8, 2021, wanted for double homicides and multiple attempted homicides in Milwaukee.

Acting on a public tip, FBI Milwaukee, in conjunction with the FBI’s International Operations Division, Legal Attaché Office in Mexico City, coordinated with the Criminal Investigation Agency of Mexico’s Attorney General Office (Agencia de Investigacion Criminal de la Fiscalia General de la Republica – FGR/AIC) to successfully locate and apprehend Juarez-Corro in Zapopan, Guadalajara, Mexico on the evening of February 3, 2022.

Juarez-Corro entered South Shore Park on the banks of Lake Michigan, where hundreds of people were gathered for a Memorial Day picnic, including many families with children. Juarez-Corro approached a friend of his estranged wife’s and began a conversation. Juarez-Corro and his wife were reported to be in the final stages of their divorce. The couple share a daughter, who was three years old at the time of the shooting.

Shortly after entering the park, Juarez-Corro reportedly pulled out a gun and began firing. Two people were killed. Juarez-Corro’s wife suffered two gunshot wounds in the chest but survived. Two others were also injured, one of them gravely.

“Octaviano Juarez-Corro spent the last 16 years running from law enforcement, hiding in another country, and believing time and distance was on his side,” said Special Agent in Charge Michael Hensle of the FBI’s Milwaukee Field Office. “The FBI has a long reach and extraordinary law enforcement partnerships across the globe. I commend the tireless efforts of all our partners from Milwaukee to Mexico in closely coordinating with the FBI in capturing this wanted fugitive and helping to bring this violent offender to justice, as well as closure to the victims and their families.”

“The Milwaukee Police Department appreciates all of the efforts by the FBI and assisting law enforcement agencies involved in the apprehension of Octaviano Juarez-Corro. With his capture, we are one step closer to bringing justice and closure to the victims, the victims’ families and everyone that was impacted by this tragic incident. I am committed to working with our community and system partners to build sustainable neighborhoods free of crime that are built on positive relationships,” said Milwaukee Police Chief Jeffrey Norman.

SAC Hensle and Chief Norman would like to thank the Municipal Police of Zapopan, Jalisco, Mexico and Mexico’s Attorney General Office (Agencia de Investigacion Criminal de la Fiscalia General de la Republica – FGR/AIC) for their coordination in the arrest of Juarez-Corro, and the public for their assistance in this investigation.

Juarez-Corro was the 525th person to be placed on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list, which was established in 1950. Additional information concerning Juarez-Corro and the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted Fugitives can be found by visiting the FBI’s website at www.fbi.gov

U.S. Marshals Add DC Murder Suspect to 15 Most Wanted List
Rewards of up to $50K for information leading to arrest

The USMS-led Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force and MPD are asking the public’s assistance in locating Outler. 

At the time of the shooting, Outler wore an ankle monitor and was on pre-trial release for a gun charge involving an AK-47 style rifle. 

Outler has ties to parts of Virginia, as well as friends and family in southern California. Investigators believe he may have traveled out of the city to escape the charges he’s facing.

“Nyjell Outler faces charges that demonstrate a clear disregard for life and public safety. He allegedly opened fire indiscriminately at a party and turned a wonderful celebration into a dark tragedy,” said Ronald Davis, USMS Director. “The U.S. Marshals and our partners at MPD are determined to see him face justice.”

Outler is 5 feet 7 inches tall, weighs approximately 140 pounds, and has black hair and brown eyes. He has a tattoo of three letters “AHK” in front of his right ear, the letters “RR” on his upper left arm and other tattoos on his left forearm. He is a known DC gang member and should be considered armed and extremely dangerous.

“Our Homicide Branch is working diligently with the U.S. Marshals Service to apprehend Nyjell Outler and hold him accountable for his reckless actions,” said Robert J. Contee III, MPD Chief of Police. “I am asking the community to please come forward if you have information about his whereabouts and help us bring justice to the victim’s family.”

The USMS established the 15 Most Wanted Fugitive Program in 1983 to prioritize the investigation and apprehension of high-profile offenders considered to be some of the country’s most dangerous fugitives – typically career criminals with histories of violence who pose a significant threat to public safety.

The mission of the Capital Area Regional Fugitive Force is to locate and apprehend the most violent and dangerous fugitives throughout the DC, Maryland and Virginia region. CARFTF continues to develop relationships with numerous federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies to help ensure the safety of the citizens of our nation’s capital and surrounding areas.

America’s First Federal Law Enforcement Agency: Tips may be submitted directly to the U.S. Marshals by calling 1-877-WANTED2 or using the USMS Tips app. Anyone with information about this case may also call MPD at 202-727-9099. Additionally, anonymous information may be submitted to the MPD TEXT TIP LINE by sending a text message to 50411.

(WASHINGTON) UNIVERSITY STUDY: People of color breathe more polluted air, regardless of income and living near to areas of pollution and roads leading to higher levels #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Dec.17: Researchers from the University of Washington explored racial and ethnic disparities by comparing air-pollution levels to census data from 1990, 2000 and 2010. That data included information about income status. Focusing on six major air pollutants, the team’s findings revealed that people of color are, on average, more likely to breathe in polluted air, regardless of income.

#AceDailyNews Grist News Report: U.S. air quality has gotten better, but disparities remain: Throughout the continental United States, people of color are more likely to be exposed to air pollution than white people, according to a studypublished Wednesday in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives.

While lower-income groups generally faced greater exposure than their wealthier counterpaklrts, those differences were not as pronounced as the racial and ethnic LNPt.

“Even if you account for differences in income, you still see disparities,” he said.

The study dovetails with a large body of research showing that decades of segregation and racist housing policies have resulted in people of color being more likely to live near highways, power plants and other sources of pollution. 

“This paper is a chance to recognize that, while every community is unique, there are some factors that play out over and over again consistently across our country,” said Marshall, a professor of civil and environmental engineering at UW, in a press release. “If we go state by state, there’s no place where there are no environmental justice concerns.”

While previous research has analyzed air pollution disparities in specific locations during particular time periods, this study is relatively novel in that it provides a national analysis of exposure disparities among racial and ethnic groups, including trends over time in each of the lower 48 states and Washington D.C. 

Building on the team’s previous research that showed people of color in the U.S. are disproportionately exposed to nitrogen dioxide, which is emitted in vehicle exhaust, the team expanded their research to include five additional pollutants that have been shown to harm human health. The new study incorporates carbon monoxide, ozone, sulfur dioxide and particulate matter, including both a larger class of particles categorized as PM10, such as dust or pollen, and smaller particles known as PM2.5, which includes harmful molecules in vehicle exhaust.

To determine the concentration of air pollutants for each census year, the researchers compiled pollution estimates from satellite data and EPA monitoring stations. These levels were then overlaid onto census demographic blocks for the contiguous U.S., including the race/ethnicity categories Black, Asian, Hispanic and white. 

Disparities varied depending on location, but for all years and all pollutants, people of color had the highest level of exposure. Although pollutant concentrations have declined overall since 1990, when the Clean Air Act was strengthened through a series of amendments, that trend continued in each of the census years.

In 2010, Asian Americans faced the highest levels of transportation-related pollutants such as carbon monoxide and nitrogen dioxide, as well as ozone; Black Americans experienced the greatest exposure to PM2.5 and sulfur dioxide; and Hispanic communities were exposed to the most PM10. With the exclusion of ozone and sulfur dioxide, the average national exposure to pollutants was lowest for white Americans.

Overall, the study shows air quality has improved over the past three decades, yet despite some declines, disparities persist. Environmental justice advocates say clean air protections must be enforced equitably so that communities of color can breathe air as clean as their white counterparts do.

“There have been so many improvements. But we still see these disparities persist, even after two decades,” said lead author Jiawen Liu, a UW doctoral student in civil and environmental engineering. “We hope this information will motivate change.”

(WASHINGTON) #Coronavirus Report: Organic Consumers Association Director Ronnie Cummins, Dr. Joseph Mercola, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., and Chelsea Green Publishing have filed a federal lawsuit in Washington state against Senator Elizabeth Warren (MA) for violating the plaintiffs’ constitutionally-guaranteed free speech #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Nov.13: Ironically, Senator Warren, a former law professor, in her unsuccessful attempt to gain the Democratic Party nomination for President in 2020, and throughout her political career, has tried to paint herself as an expert on Constitutional law and a progressive champion of free speech, science-based policy, and individual choice.

#CoronavirusNewsDesk says Fighting Back Against the “Book Burners”specifically by sending out a letter, reprinted widely in the mass media, demanding that Amazon (and by implication others) stop selling Cummins and Mercola’s best-selling book, The Truth About #COVID19 Read their press release

Warren has threatened Amazon, the nation’s largest bookseller, warning that unless they stop selling the book, The Truth About COVID-19, Congress will pass federal legislation in retaliation that will cost the giant bookseller billions of dollars.

Read the full complaint filed against Warren

In the current politically polarized climate of fearmongering and authoritarianism surrounding the COVID pandemic, social media companies including Facebook, Google, and YouTube, booksellers, and the legacy mass media have joined forces with the Biden administration, Big Pharma, military contractors, and federal health bureaucrats to censor, slander, and suppress alternative information regarding the origins, nature, virulence, prevention, and treatment of COVID-19, in clear violation of the U.S. Constitution.

(WASHINGTON) Capitol Hill ATTACK Report: An investigation into January’s deadly attack will be able to access the White House records of former president Donald Trump, a federal judge has ruled #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Nov.11: In a clear win for congressional oversight powers, Judge Tanya Chutkan gave permission to the House of Representatives committee to obtain the potentially sensitive information: She rejected an argument by Mr Trump’s lawyers that telephone records, visitor logs and other White House documents should be hidden from the committee.

#AceDailyNews says according to USA Media Reports: Donald Trump fails in bid to block probe into attack on US Capitol, 10 White House aides subpoenaed earlier on Tuesday, House investigators issued subpoenas to 10 former officials who worked for Mr Trump at the end of his presidency in an effort to find out more about what he was doing and saying before the riot.

“While broad, these requests, and each of the other requests made by the Committee, do not exceed the Committee’s legislative powers,” Judge Chutkan said in her decision.

Mr Trump had argued that the materials requested by the House committee were covered by a legal doctrine known as executive privilege that protects the confidentiality of some White House communications.

He requested an injunction blocking the National Archives —  the federal agency that holds his White House records — from complying with the committee’s requests for hundreds of pages of documents.

Mr Trump quickly filed a court notice, indicating he would appeal the decision.

The committee says it needs the requested materials to understand the role Mr Trump may have played in provoking the riot on January 6, which killed five people and saw more than 700 face criminal charges.How US Capitol security failedSeven weeks of investigations and comments are bringing clear points of security failures into focus, including intelligence sharing, confusion over the chain of command and poor leadership.

“That’s a big deal,” US Representative Bennie Thompson, chairman of the House of Representatives select committee, told CNN after Judge Chutkan’s ruling.

“I look forward to getting this information. I look forward to our investigators going through it with a fine-tooth comb to make sure that our government was not weaponised against its citizens.”

Judge Chutkan said Mr Trump had not acknowledged “the deference owed to” President Joe Biden’s determination that the committee could access the materials.

“[Mr Trump’s] position that he may override the express will of the executive branch appears to be premised on the notion that his executive power exists in perpetuity,'” she said.

“But presidents are not kings, and plaintiff is not president.”

The subpoenas include demands for documents and testimony from ex-senior adviser Stephen Miller and former press secretary Kayleigh McEnany.

It will bring the House panel closer to Mr Trump’s inner circle.

It comes a day after the committee subpoenaed six other associates of the former president who spread mistruths about widespread fraud in the election and strategised about how to thwart Mr Biden’s legitimate victory.

“The Select Committee wants to learn every detail of what went on in the White House on January 6th and in the days beforehand,” said Mississippi Representative Bennie Thompson, the Democratic chairman of the panel.

Stephen Miller gestures with his hand as he speaks at a White House press conference.

“We need to know precisely what role the former president and his aides played in efforts to stop the counting of the electoral votes and if they were in touch with anyone outside the White House attempting to overturn the outcome of the election.”

Mr Trump gave an incendiary speech before the assault on the Capitol, repeating his false claims that the November 2020 election was stolen through widespread voting fraud.

He urged his supporters to go to the Capitol and “fight like hell” to “stop the steal”.

His supporters stormed the Capitol in a failed bid to prevent Congress from formally certifying Mr Biden’s election victory.

Mr Biden, a Democrat and former vice-president under Barack Obama, took office on January 20.

Book Reviews By Ace ♣

(WASHINGTON) The Library of Congress Report: Acquisition of the M.C. Migel Memorial Rare Book Collection from the American Foundation for the Blind, comprised of over 750 items dating from 1617 to the present, including books by and about Hellen Keller and other blind authors #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.30: Among the rare finds in the collection are books that provide a historical perspective on changing social attitudes toward the blind and innovations in the treatment and education of the blind over the past 300 years.

#AceBookDesk Library of Congress Acquires Rare Book Collection from American Foundation for the Blind and the collection is a treasure trove of seminal books on blindness, maps, rare pamphlets and many volumes of poetry, biographies and autobiographies.

The acquisition of the collection from the American Foundation for the Blind expands in a significant way the Library’s coverage of the historical responses to the practical, social and institutional needs of the blind,” said Mark Dimunation, chief of rare books and special collections at the Library of Congress. “This is a most welcome addition for researchers as well as those who rely upon the Library for services and support.”

Jason Broughton, director of the Library of Congress’  National Library Service for the Blind and Print Disabled, added: “The Library‘s acquisition of this collection reinforces our long-standing commitment to serving blind and disabled communities. NLS works daily to ensure that all may read, and the Migel collection provides an excellent historical foundation as to why our work has been, and continues to be, so necessary.”

Kirk Adams, president and chief executive of the American Foundation for the Blind, said the acquisition of the Migel collection by the Library of Congress “is a wonderful step forward towards disseminating the history of blindness and recognizing the importance of disability history.”

“These volumes reflect centuries-old stigma surrounding blindness, and societies’ efforts at progress in the form of work opportunities for blind men and women, innovative teaching methods, and the twists and turns in the development of tactile books,” Adams said.

There are books by or about Samuel Gridley Howe (1801-1876), considered the founder of education for the blind in the United States and whose activism included advocating for the abolition of slavery, prison reform, support for refugees from Crete and caring for intellectually disabled children. The collection includes a copy of Howe’s “Atlas of the United States Printed for the Use of the Blind” published in 1837 and written in raised roman type.

Robert Irwin, the first director of the American Foundation for the Blind, began the collection in 1926 with a $1,000 grant approved by the board to create a definitive reference library for the blindness field. As the library donations grew from around the country, the foundation hired librarian Helga Lende to manage the collection. Lende expanded it by traveling to Europe and acquiring volumes in English, French, Spanish, German, Italian, Esperanto, Dutch, Polish and Norwegian.

Highlights from the M.C. Migel Rare Book Collection

The earliest book in the collection, published in France in 1617, concerns Louis Grotto, an Italian ambassador and orator who was blind, and is titled “Les Harangues de Louys Grotto, Aveugle D’Hadrie Admirable en Eloquence” (The Speeches of Louys Grotto, A Blind Man Famed for His Eloquence). 

The first landmark book in the library is Denis Diderot’s “Lettre Sur Les Aveugles À l’Usage de Ceux Qui Voyent” (A Letter Regarding the Blind for the Attention of Those Who See), published in 1749. Considered radical in its day, the book explores the effect of all five senses on the intellect and what happens when there is loss of sight.

Nicholas Saunderson’s “The Elements of Algebra,” published as a series of 10 books in 1740, a year after his death, is also in the collection. Saunderson became blind as an infant after contracting smallpox, but his intellectual powers earned him a job as professor of mathematics at Cambridge University.

Works in the collection also highlight the expansion of tactile methods of reading beginning in the late 18th century. The Migel library includes the 1839 edition of Louis Braille’s book explaining his invention of a tactile six-dot reading and writing system rather than raised letters of the alphabet

The collection contains two copies of the rare first edition of “Essai Sur L’Education des Aveugles” (Essay on the Education of the Blind) by Valentin Haüy, published in Paris in 1786 using embossed letters of the French alphabet. Haüy founded the first school for blind children in Paris and a similar school in Russia, spearheading the creation of others in many European countries. His work reportedly sparked the beginning of modern methods in the education of blind people.

The rarest book in the collection is “Précis Sur L’Histoire de France” (A Summary of the History of France), published in Paris in 1837. This volume is one of only three known copies of the first edition of the first book embossed using the braille system. The other two copies are located at the Perkins School for the Blind in Boston, and at the Haüy Museum in Paris.

While Diderot, Hauy and Braille were the main proponents of modern methods of reading for the blind in France, the Migel library includes works from directors, inventors and writers who furthered their education and understanding in other countries. Among them was William Moon, an English inventor who lost his vision at 21 and in 1845 created the Moon Type, an embossed printing that used the outline of letters derived from the Latin alphabet and was considered easier to use than braille.

The more than 60 boxes in the rare collection include a letter from Paul the Apostle to the Ephesians written in raised type; other scripture passages; a picture book for the blind and a pamphlet describing musical notation for the blind.

(WASHINGTON) High Court Report: Julian #Assange Case: Lawyers for the US have told the judge who blocked his extradition was misled by his psychiatrist #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.28: In January, a court ruled Mr Assange could not be extradited to the US due to concerns over his mental health: Mr Assange is wanted over the publication of thousands of classified documents in 2010 and 2011: The US says the leaks broke the law and endangered lives but Mr Assange says the case is politically motivated.

#AceDailyNews says according to US News yesterday the U.S. has began legal appeal to get Julian #Assange extradited under the latest high court judgement over his mental health and now the government is starting a legal appeal to try to get the #Wikileaks founder extradited…..

Watch: Why is Julian Assange still facing extradition?

In the appeal against the January decision, barristers for the US said it had given four clear assurances that he would be treated humanely.

The district judge overseeing the USA’s extradition appeal at the start of the year, Vanessa Baraitser, said that while publishing on Wikileaks the classified military and government documents that Mr Assange released arguably amounted to a crime – including the disclosure of the identities of Iraqis and Afghan citizens who had helped coalition forces – he could not be transferred to the US because he was unwell and could take his own life. 

However, the US team, launching its appeal, said the evidence was wrong and the Wikileaks founder could even serve a prison sentence back home in Australia.

James Lewis QC, representing the US, told the Lord Chief Justice and Lord Justice Holroyde the conclusion reached in January had been wrong on legal and evidential grounds.

Mr Lewis said Mr Assange’s psychiatrist had misled the earlier judge and the US had also not been given an opportunity to answer the judge’s concerns. 

Mr Assange, 50, is wanted in the US on allegations of a 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 dead civilians from a helicopter in Iraq.

Mr Assange has been held in Belmarsh Prison since 2019 when he was carried out of the Ecuadorian embassy in London by police before being arrested for breaching his bail conditions.

He had entered the embassy in 2012 to avoid extradition to Sweden to face sex offence allegations, which he has always denied and were eventually dropped.

At the outset of Wednesday’s proceedings, Mr Assange’s legal team told judges their client had been asked not to attend the hearing by video link because he was apparently not well enough to do so.

Later in the morning, Mr Assange chose to attend. He could be seen sitting in a video link suite at the prison, wearing a light coloured shirt and dark tie, with shoulder length hair and a black face mask around his mouth.

Mr Lewis told the High Court that Washington had now given four binding assurances as to how the hacker and activist would be treated:

  • The US would not impose a highly restrictive form of solitary confinement on Mr Assange before or after trial – although it could do so if he committed a further offence
  • Mr Assange could apply to serve a sentence in Australia and the US would agree to that transfer
  • Prison authorities would ensure Mr Assange would receive “any such clinical and psychological treatment” that prison clinicians recommended
  • In addition to this, Mr Assange would also not be sent to ADX Florence, the United States’ “supermax” isolated prison, reserved for the worst offenders. 

Mr Lewis said: “The assurances are clearing binding on the United States.”

He added: “The district judge’s approach carries with it the risk of rewarding fugitives for their flight, and of creating an anomaly between the approach of the courts in domestic criminal proceedings, and in extradition.”

Edward Fitzgerald QC, representing Mr Assange, told the court that although in written arguments the US authorities had “sought to minimise the severity of Mr Assange’s mental disorder and suicide risk”, it remained “perfectly reasonable to find it oppressive to extradite a mentally disordered person because his extradition is likely to result in his death”.

Mr Fitzgerald said that during the January court hearing, Ms Baraitser relied on the “inevitable fact” that – if extradited – Mr Assange would be detained in isolation and deprived of the protective factors he experienced in Belmarsh prison. The US’s assurances at the time did not remove the risk of detention in special administrative measures.

He added that although the US has said it could transfer Mr Assange to Australia if he was convicted, Australia has not said whether it would accept him, and the transfer “likely won’t occur”.

The High Court hearing is expected to end on Thursday and a decision will be made at a later date.

Supporters, family members and friends of Mr Assange have expressed their “outrage” after he was not allowed to attend his court hearing in person.

His partner, Stella Moris, was outside the Royal Courts of Justice in central London ahead of the hearing with other supporters of Mr Assange who had gathered.

Ms Moris said: “I’m very concerned for Julian’s health, I saw him on Saturday, he’s very thin.

“I hope the courts will end this nightmare, that Julian is able to come home soon and that wise heads prevail.

“We’re very concerned that he’s not able to be here today to give instruction to his lawyers, to be able to ask for clarifications about what’s going on in court.

“Julian should never be extradited.”
