Global News published this video item, entitled “British court rules WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange can be extradited to US” – below is their description.

A ruling from Britain’s High Court paves the way for Julian Assange to be extradited to the United States, overturning a previous court decision declaring the WikiLeaks founder to be a suicide risk.

Assange is facing 18 U.S. charges relating to the publishing of classified reports on the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, and diplomatic cables. In 2012, he sought refuge in London’s Ecuadorian embassy after facing sex assault charges in Sweden. In 2019, after 7 years in the embassy, British police literally dragged Assange into custody.

He now remains in a London prison.

Global’s Redmond Shannon explains why Assange wouldn’t face the strictest detention measures in the U.S. and what’s next for him.
