Call on the Government to release Julian Assange

Don't Extradite Assange Campaign
United Kingdom

Mar 29, 2020 — 

UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, The Prison Governors' Association and other organizations urge governments to take urgent action to protect the health and safety of people in detention and to release low risk and vulnerable prisoners.

"Maintaining prisoners in detention during this #COVID19 crisis is high risk & should be a measure of last resort. With widening outbreaks & a growing number of deaths already reported in prisons & other institutions in many countries, authorities should act now to #StopTheSpread." - Michelle Bachelet, United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights

"Government must look at early release schemes at speed for lower risk offenders, this is particularly pertinent to women offenders who we know pose the least risk to society. This will reduce the level of overcrowding, always a good thing for stability during challenging times. It will also help delay the spread of the virus through prisons, so from a health perspective there is an imperative." - The Prison Governors’ Association
