Wikileaks – The Greens Seek Legal Rights

The Australian Greens are demanding the Australian Government take action to ensure WikiLeaks editor-in-chief Julian Assange’s legal and consular rights are upheld.

The Australian Greens are demanding the Australian Government take action to ensure WikiLeaks editor-in-chief Julian Assange’s legal and consular rights are upheld.

On 1-2 February, Mr Assange’s appeal in the UK Supreme Court was heard on whether a prosecutor is a judicial authority and can legitimately issue a European Arrest Warrant. The decision by the 7 Supreme Court justices considering the matter could come as soon as 1 March, after which Mr Assange could find himself on his way to a holding cell in Stockholm. Thereafter, there is the potential for him to be transferred to the United States.

We are concerned that our government has done nothing to investigate the secret US Grand Jury investigation into Wikileaks, which could lead to Assange’s extradition to the US.
