Awaiting the next step in the Julian Assange case

A JUDGMENT in the case over the US demand that the UK extradite Julian Assange is expected on 4 January 2021. Both sides have said they will appeal the case to the High Court if they lose.

There is expected to be a demonstration outside the Central Criminal Court (the Old Bailey) in London on the day, with the NUJ expected to attend. Julian Assange is at the time of writing isolating in his cell following a Covid outbreak at Belmarsh prison. There's a statement for journalists to sign in support of him at www.speak-up-for-assange.org
