Britain promises not to extradite Julian Assange lailasnews


Ecuador’s president said that the UK government has assured him that Assange will not be extradited to any country where his life is in danger.

Julian Assange, an Australian computer programmer, has been living under asylum at the Embassy of Ecuador in London since August 2012, after he leaked highly sensitive government information provided by Chelsea Manning on his website, WikiLeaks, in 2010.

WikiLeaks has been used for the release of thousands of classified US military and diplomatic cables.

Assange says that he faces charges under seal in the US for revealing sensitive government information on WikiLeaks, though the exact charges against him remain unclear.

Assange has remained in Ecuador’s embassy in London for fear that he will be extradited to countries where he is wanted or that he will be arrested in the UK for the criminal offence of breaching his bail conditions.

Ecuador’s president, Lenin Moreno, says the UK has now provided sufficient guarantees for Julian Assange to leave his government’s embassy in London. He added that his government had received written assurances from the UK government that they will not extradite Assange to any country where he would face the death penalty.

  17. From my understanding, I think someone tried impersonating a president. He should be prosecuted if that crime. That’s for sure.

  18. He’s lucky. Not everyone goes free after leaking sensitive government information. Some even lose their lives for this. I hope the promise is kept though

  19. Why toiling with sensitive info that could put lives at risk
    Leaking sensitive info is a very dangerous thing because in the hand of the wrong person
    It could create too much pain and losses
    I still feel he shouldn’t go unpunished

  20. This is a very good promise, however keeping this promise might be difficult.. Why not transport him to Ecuador, if he’ll be safer there.

  21. If you know you can’t keep to your promise, never make promises. But if the American government can keep to their promise, then he’s a lucky man.

  22. if they are really going to keep they promise because it is not just making a promise it also about keeping it then he should come out and be free

  23. Freedom of movement and living in fear has turned out to be the new way of life for him.
    He has no choice,He has to live with it,

  24. Is a welcome development for this man that has been living in fear for some years now. Good the British government have come out with such assurance and hope for him to walk freely. He only did what he did because America was manipulating the many countries and spying on them. The truth is bitter and out of bitterness of that truth, they want to jail him unjustly. Hope the government keep there own bargain and ensure his safety always.

  25. not making a promise the most important thing is keeping the promise. If they can do what they said no problems secured Guaranteed.

  28. When I see other countries doing things like this I just wish Nigeria can learn from it,, nice one from Britain government

  29. This is just a bait to lure him out of the Ecuador embassy. Wasn’t it under UK’s watch that a spy was poisoned?

  30. Julian emwent to far, for the UK not to move him to other state or country to face his death penalty, it mean they wanna deal with him ryt there in UK.

  31. Promise is a debt, i believe they will keep their word. This is good, Nigeria should learn and do too

  32. Making the promise a promise should be a case study . I don’t think British government can still promise and fail .

  33. Powerful USA the world have heard it all, so if you’ve Since Britain has promised not to extradite him, they should keep to their words for his personal safety from threat

  34. Can Britain be trusted… what about the charge against him for jumping bail. . I think he should not leave the embassy of ecuador .

  35. This is a nice information, Ecuador’s president, Lenin Moreno, says the UK has now provided sufficient guarantees for Julian Assange to leave his government’s embassy in London.

  36. Uhmm promises
    He is wanted in other countries
    What’s is offence?
    Do well to keep to ur promise for him

  37. i hope he can stay protected forever but he should know that britain cannot be trusted,why,they are a strong ally of the US

  38. This is an integrity issue, keep to your words, keep up the spirit, and this is coming up at the right time.

  39. The Ecuador government has tried to protect him at the embassy against danger and this is highly commendable. UK had made a promise which I hope they will keep.

  40. They should have even kept him in prison. Doesn’t he know that leaking of sensitive information is a crime?

  41. Assange himself is a terrible individual knowing the implication of what he did, he still went ahead.Now he is seeking assylum…smh

  42. Some people are strong to take a bold decision of leaking classified information that is defaulted to be death penalty. Hope he not extradite to face the consequences of his actions.

  43. I hope he learned his lesson..maybe he would think twice b4 leaking a classified info next time

  44. The sole aim of the government of a country is to protect the citizen and this is very good I like what british government is doing

  45. One thing people should always becareful about is not just to make promises but to fulfil whatsoever promise they make, because there is precaution for not fulfilling promises made…

  46. As much as it is documented it still can be fabricated. One thing is to promise and the other important one is to carry out the promise.

  47. One thing is to make promise, another is to keep it, don’t disappoint them, keep the good work moving.
