Julian Assange will most likely be subjected to torture if he is extradited to the US, the UN special rapporteur on torture warned, revealing Assange’s current living conditions. The UN special rapporteur on torture, Nils Melzer, visited Assange at Belmarsh Prison in London with two medical experts in May to access the extent of the ill-treatment the WikiLeaks founder has been subjected to over the years. Following the examination, Melzer wrote letters to the American, British, Ecuadorian, and Swedish governments outlining his conclusions.

In my run for U.S. Senate against Utah's Orrin Hatch, I posted many progressive ideas and principles that I internalized over the years. I'm leaving that site up indefinitely, since it describes what I believe most members of our species truly (more...)

"...Melzer wrote letters to the American, British, Ecuadorian, and Swedish governments outlining his conclusions."

Is it my imagination, or is Australia always left out of these conversations?

Australia should be equally criticized for its silence and complicity in all of this. As an Australian citizen, Assange's due process rights, at the very least, should have been protected by his home country.

In my eyes, he was victimized by all 5 governments, not just the 4 we're always hearing about.

Absolutely. And the Aussies had/have the best chance to save him. John Pilger and many others have noted this on many occasions.

What was that supposed to be? (All I see is a large blank space.)

There is still hope on a wing and a prayer for Julian;

In a ruling published late Tuesday, Judge John Koeltl of the US District Court for the Southern District of New York delivered a devastating blow to the US-led conspiracy against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.

In his ruling, Judge Koeltl, a Bill Clinton nominee and former assistant special prosecutor for the Watergate Special Prosecution Force, dismissed "with prejudice" a civil lawsuit filed in April 2018 by the Democratic National Committee (DNC) alleging WikiLeaks was civilly liable for conspiring with the Russian government to steal DNC emails and data and leak them to the public.

Jennifer Robinson, a leading lawyer for Assange, and other WikiLeaks attorneys welcomed the ruling as "an important win for free speech."

The decision exposes the Democratic Party in a conspiracy of its own to attack free speech and cover up the crimes of US imperialism and the corrupt activities of the two parties of Wall Street. Judge Koeltl stated:

Caught that story. Was like music to my eyes. Let's hope this spark of sanity can start a fire of justice!

Of course, the MSM is playing deaf, dumb and blind on the ruling. Here.

Judge John Koeltl's action should long be praised and rewarded.
