Julian Assange Gets Another Chance

 

Could the Supreme Court in the United Kingdom rule on the Julian Assange extradition? A high court has given him the right to ask it to.

On Monday, a High Court ruled that Assange has an “arguable point of law” to oppose his extradition to the United States. He can now petition the court to take up his case.

He is wanted in the U.S. for publication of classified documents. He has been fighting this extradition for years and until recently it was assumed he had lost. But all is not lost. He can appeal to a higher court but this is not exactly a victory since there is no guarantee that the court takes up the case and he is still in a prison where his fiancee and mother of his children said he is “suffering profoundly.”
