UK. Julian Assange files suit against Secretary of State Dominic Raab


Journalist Julian Assange, founder of the WikiLeaks site, and his partner, lawyer Stella Morris, filed a complaint on Friday against Dominic Raab, Secretary of State for Justice, for “abuse of power”, while London s oppose their marriage in prison. Authorities referred the marriage proceedings to the Crown Prosecution Service. Julian Assange’s defense challenges this decision in the absence of British prosecution against the journalist. According to the couple, these obstacles respond to the political war of the United States, which demands the extradition of the journalist, who faces 175 years in prison for revealing war crimes in Iraq and Afghanistan. “A wedding would be a moment of happiness, a bit of normalcy under crazy circumstances. Julian needs to hang on because everyday life is a struggle ”, stresses Stella Morris. If allowed, this union would not affect a possible extradition.
