Live Updates: Day 10 of WikiLeaks Founder Julian Assange's Extradition Hearing

Subscribe
A hearing to judge whether Assange should be extradited to the United States resumed on 7 September at the London Central Criminal Court, after six months of delay due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The tenth day of proceedings in the trial of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange's extradition hearing begins on 21 September.

Julian Assange, who has been incarcerated at the maximum-security prison of Belmarsh since his arrest at the Ecuadorian embassy in London in April 2019, is attending the trial from behind a glass panel, away from his defence team.

The hearing is expected to last another two weeks, and it is highly probable that the verdict will be appealed by the losing side.

The US Department of Justice is seeking to extradite Assange on 17 counts of violating the Espionage Act and one count of computer misuse, which carry a maximum sentence of 175 years in prison, for the publication of classified information on the US wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and thousands of US diplomatic cables in 2010 and 2011.
