Assange may face re-arrest

agosto 1, 2020

Assange’s legal team warns of his potential re-arrest based on a new extradition request by the US Department of Justice (DoJ) citing the same 18 offences.

His fiancée, Stella Moris tweeted: “At any moment we expect that the US will drop its existing extradition request and then re-arrest [Assange] on the very same charges, under a different extradition request.’’

The DoJ’s deadline to finalise the existing extradition request was 14th June 2019, which makes the latest superseding indictment 14 months late. Furthermore, 6 weeks have passed since the indictment was published on the DoJ’s website without being served to the UK Court.
