RSF Opposes Possible Extradition of Julian Assange
Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is warning that the Trump administration’s use of the Espionage Act to extradite Julian Assange to the U.S. could lead to a sentence up to 175 years in prison for providing information to journalists.
“This would set a dangerous precedent for all journalists who publish classified information that is of public interest,” an RSF release states.
The organization has launched a petition calling for the United Kingdom not to comply with the United States’ request to extradite Julian Assange. They have asked supporters to share their appeal using the #FreeAssange hashtag.
