Australia: Cowardly pol refuses to stand up for political prisoner Julian Assange

Source: ABC News

“Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese on Monday rejected calls for him to publicly demand the United States drop its prosecution of WikiLeaks founder and Australian citizen Julian Assange. The Australian government has been under mounting pressure to intervene since the British government last week ordered Assange’s extradition to the United States on spying charges. Assange’s supporters and lawyers say his actions were protected by the U.S. Constitution. Albanese, who came to power at elections a month ago, declined to say whether he had spoken to President Joe Biden about the case.” (06/20/22)
