Absolutely pathetic OP... and it's still getting flags and the OP getting stars.

Sajid Javid signs US extradition order for Julian Assange

The home secretary, Sajid Javid, has revealed he has signed a request for Julian Assange to be extradited to the US where he faces charges of computer hacking.

Speaking on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme on Thursday, Javid said: “He’s rightly behind bars. There’s an extradition request from the US that is before the courts tomorrow but yesterday I signed the extradition order and certified it and that will be going in front of the courts tomorrow.”

Javid’s decision opens the way to the court sending the WikiLeaks founder to the US. Assange faces an 18-count indictment, issued by the US Department of Justice, that includes charges under the Espionage Act. He is accused of soliciting and publishing classified information and conspiring to hack into a government computer.


Thomas Garner, an extradition lawyer at Gherson Solicitors, said Javid’s certification of the request was “an important though merely procedural step” to start the extradition process.

“I would expect the court to set a preliminary timetable for the extradition process tomorrow,” he said. “It is likely to be many months before any hearing at the magistrates court and of course either side may then seek to appeal that decision in due course.


So this is a first step, but there's a long way to go before it's a done deal.

Pretty disgusting the way everyone in government treats whistleblowers and their messengers. I don't know how they are getting espionage out of this, sounds like BS to me. They just want Assange on US soil so they can end him.

As an aside, is Sajid Javid, the "the invasion secretary" why the UK is such an ef'ing mess? Sounds like it's like Canada where they put that Hussein asshole in charge of invasion, er I mean immigration to help Trudeau screw over the nation.

Cheers - Dave

It sure is despicable. When the truth is criminal, and the wrongdoers have cover of darkness, we have BIG problems. When whistleblowers have to get permission from government officials to reveal their wrongdoing, we're totally screwed.

Yup. We're not allowed to know. But by golly gee we'd better condemn and vilify Assange on their say so!!!

Which goes back to making truth criminal... at this point, the authorities can say anything and accuse Assange (and everyone) of anything and everything, and we have absolutely no means of verifying or fact-checking... because we are supposed to take the word of the very people Assange is blowing the whistle on. And too many people cheer them on.

Sheesh. It's a never-ending circle jerk. At least as long as the truth is criminal.

Try to keep focussed. Extradition is a legal process and not really part of the persoanlity politics people love to create when trying to talk about law.

The extradition process is quite clear... Have a read UK legislation, start Part 2 section 70

Yep, try to keep focused... Traitors in government are a much greater threat than some guy that's been sent information to publish. Read some Marcus tullius cicero :-)

"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague."

Cheers - Dave

It should be granted, based on him being in custody for only a minor infraction. The judge will weigh the two cases and decide which has the imperative.
