The Duran’s Alex Christoforou and Editor-in-Chief Alexander Mercouris discuss the “shocking and vindictive” sentence handed down by a UK court to Julian Assange for the crime of skipping bail.
WikiLeaks slammed the excessive verdict, and 50-week prison sentence in a maximum security facility, connected to skipping bail back in 2012.
On a separate legal front Julian Assange told a British judge that he wished to fight extradition, as the Wikileaks founder appeared in the first hearing in what’s expected to be a long legal battle over the US’s extradition request. The hearing was concluded with the next court date set for May 30.
