Assange gets 'last chance' U.S. extradition appeal date | 20 Dec 2023 | WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange’s possible final appeal against extradition to the United States will be held at the UK High Court of Justice in London on February 20 and 21, according to a statement released by the media organization. Assange faces 17 charges under the US Espionage Act and potentially a 175-year prison sentence. Two judges will review a ruling made in June, which had refused the journalist's permission to make any further appeals. This "may be the final chance for Julian Assange to prevent his extradition to the United States," WikiLeaks warned in a statement. On June 6, a UK High Court judge rejected all eight grounds for his motion, backing the 2020 extradition order.
