In a key ruling yesterday, a UK court has ruled against extraditing Australian national and founder of Wiki Leaks, Julian Assange. It appears the monarchic nation has heeded Mr. Assanges last recorded words, "RESIST!" as the US has been patiently waiting for his extradition. It is unclear at this point whether or not this is a geopolitically motivated move by the UK or justice and mercy for a man that has been imprisoned for several years in the Ecuadorian embassy in London, then in the notorious Belmarsh prison, the former home of Oscar Wilde. His alleged crime is the desemination of evidence of corruption and brutality among the major global power players to the entire globe. Perhaps instead of persecuting this brave soul we should be thanking him for holding Western power accountable to the virtues upon which it was built.
A British judge ruled on Monday that WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange should not be extradited to the United States to face criminal charges including breaking a spying law, saying his mental health problems meant he would be at risk of suicide.
