Julian Assange is just sentenced to 50 weeks in a UK prison for evading his arrest, then requested by Zwedish autorities.

There is no info yet on his extradition to the US.

Maybe he should misbehave in the UK prison, so he must stay a while longer?

EDIT: also no info on his insurance files and the release of the access codes. Maybe this was all bunk?

Do they allow inmates to have internet access in the UK?

Whilst you may have had fears as to what may happen toyou, nonetheless you had a choice, and the course of action you chose was to commit this offence in the manner and with the features I have already outlined. In addition, I reject the suggestion that yourvoluntary residence in the Embassyshould reduce any sentence.You were not living under prison conditions, and you could have left at any time to face due process with the rights and protections which the legal system in this country provides.


Personally, I am glad he is being treated just like any othet bail offender, rather then a special case celebrity. Plus, he'll be released half way through his sentence, so the full 50 weeks won't be run. That's also part of the judgement.

Great post, justice seems to be blind in the UK in this case. They don’t use him as an example (to punish him extra hard) and they don’t give him a pass for being famous.

I would wish other countries would follow this example

He'll be out in 6months.
The Swedish case is not going to fly. They have no evidence beyond a he said/she said.
As for the US, they should be roundly condemned for indicting a journalist.

People in the UK get to walk for the small oopsie of stabbing someone, so 50 weeks for skipping bail makes so much sense. Sad honk.

he wont walk out.. he will be handed over...

there is no way, after everything the US has said on the record.. that Julian Assange isnt destined for a US Court room.

Ludicrous!

The entire charade played out because the Deep State wanted him in the US.

He knew it, we all knew it.

Wait for the appeal!

Then watch him sue the British Government.

True Justice is taking the long road on this one.

For such a crime as this he'll basically be in a hotel. Not sure about internet access, though. I thin kmaybe for some tasks, but restricted. I doubt you'll be seeing him running his website!

I'm wondering how his incarceration will play out. Does Britain have a Club Fed equivalent? Will he be housed with the snitches and child rapists? Or is he going to be serving his time in gen pop?

If it's the latter he's going to need to keep his head on a swivel. I'm sure there's many prisoners that wouldn't mind making a name for themselves by taking out a big name like Assange.

He is not a US Citizen and is not subject to their laws. Would you be happy if your wife was handed over to an Islamic country for not wearing the head scarf? Do you want to be subject to every other countries laws?

This has always been nuts.

None of the prisoners on GITMO are US citizens either (well, 99%)... but they're destined for a US Courtroom

There's a new boss in town, I love Trump but this is horrible and he's made the wrong choice here.. but Trumps going to follow through and throw the book at Assange I now fear..

He'll likely be kept secure given the threat, but he'll be in Club Med compared to the living conditions in the Embassy.
He'll probably be a free man in 2019 and able to fully restart his good work exposing Govts.

What - on that phony indictment charge?
He helped an NSA employee with the passwords and how to hack a computer - yeah, sure he did.
The US Govt has no case. He might see the inside of a courtroom in the US, though, testifying that Seth Rich handed over the DNC emails.

Julian's letter of apology to the court.

I apologise unreservedly to those who consider that I have disrespected them by the way I have pursued my case.

This is not what I wanted or intended.

I found myself struggling with terrifying circumstances for which neither I nor those from whom I sought advice could work out any remedy.

I did what I thought at the time was the best and perhaps the only thing that could be done - which I hoped might lead to a legal resolution being reached between Ecuador and Sweden that would protect me from the worst of my fears.

I regret the course that this took; the difficulties were instead compounded and impacted upon very many others.

Whilst the difficulties I now face may have become even greater, nevertheless it is right for me to say this now.

My thread on this got posted same time so asked mod to delete. But that’s not the case. I touched on the prison he will be in for six months and it’s filled with scum like ISIS terrorists and psychopathic child killers.

During Julian Assange’s sentencing for breaching bail, the court was a read a letter saying “I did what I thought at the time was the best or perhaps the only thing that I could have done." The letter also apologised to those who “consider I’ve disrespected them.”

Possibly, or possibly not. The extradition case to get Assange to the US will enable all of us to have access to the arguements and assertions, as it will be done in a English court. Then there's appeals and all that. Ultimately, the course through the English courts has to happen before Assange departs to the US, but that's not a given. The courts may turn down the request, or the Home Secretary at a future date may not allow it. Of course Assange has already failed with one extradion (to Sweden) so he'll know the process.

Two things to note:
1. If there is an extradition it's going to start tomorrow, so he'll be occupied on that.
2. If his extradion fails, or does not happen, then will he be deported from the UK and go back to Australia. If that happens can the US try again?

You can read up about the extradition process HERE on the Crown Prosecution Service website.
