Protect Julian Assange's human rights and stop the extradition.


Protect Julian Assange's human rights and stop the extradition. 

  As of today, 14 June 2012, the UK Supreme Court has rejected Julian Assange's application to re-appeal. 

  Spending over 500 days in house arrest, he appeal to the High Courts and the UK Supreme Court, after 3 months of debating the validity of the European Arrest Warrant and whether or not the Swedish prosecutor was a judicial authority, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of Sweden, dismissing Assange's appeal.  

But his QC Dinah Rose, ask for reopening of the case because of the raised a point which was able to delay his extradition and potentially reopen the case as a whole. Since the decision was based on interpretation of the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties - something not brought up during the February proceedings - Ms Rose argued that the defence hadn't the chance to properly contest the point.   

With the application rejected, he now faces extradition in 14 days, his final appeal is to the European Court of Human Rights.   

The issue is not only the abuse of the European Arrest Warrant, issuing for sake of questioning and not for prosecution, but also the fact that his human rights are risk, due not being charged and possibly being face with extradition to the US, where he may face the death penalty, keep in mind that he has not been charged in Sweden or the US or any country.    We need to persuade our leaders to learn about Julian Assange, support him, and protect his human rights.
