According to reports, a British judge today rejected a US request to extradite Wikileaks founder Julian Assange on espionage charges.
On Monday morning local time, London district court judge Vanessa baraitser made the decision, saying that due to Assange’s mental health concerns, extradition to the United States would be a “tyrannical act.”.
Baleser also said that if extradited to the United States, Assange is likely to commit suicide.
It is reported that Assange faces 18 charges in the United States, which are related to the 500000 secret documents released by Wikileaks in 2010, which describe in detail all aspects of military operations in Afghanistan and Iraq.
