Tra circa 1 ora (15.00/15.30 ora italiana) riprenderanno le udienze.

Continuerò da qui il LIVE THREAD, che proseguirà anche sul canale Telegram.


🔴 #CASOASSANGE 🇮🇹 Diretta Live

Il giudice rifiuta la richiesta della difesa di consentire a Ellsberg (89 ANNI) di iniziare alle 15:15, (07:15 in California). Dice che deve iniziare alle 2.30pm (6.30am per lui). Il tribunale gli ha inviato il fascicolo di 350 pagine ieri.

Iniziano di nuovo le udienze all'Old Bailey di Londra.
La difesa riceve istruzioni da Julian Assange, mentre si siede sul banco degli imputati (la famosa scatola di vetro) indossando una mascherina bianca.

For the third day in a row, @amnesty & 40 other legal observers, have been denied access to the technology that would allow them to observe the extradition hearing of @wikileaks founder #JulianAssange.

This was the letter we received yesterday.
In her letter, the judge expresses her "regret" at her decision to deny remote access to the proceedings to @amnesty but offers no reason for her decision

Instead, she sets out rules to ensure the court is #COVID19 safe

But remote access is FAR safer than practices I witnessed.
Telling legal observers - some of whom are from the European Parliament - that they have to compete with the public for one of 8 gallery seats results in a scrum of people at the doorway to the court.

There was no distancing & even court officials & police weren't wearing masks. ImageImage

Ahead of the start of the hearing, RSF along with @StellaMoris1, attempted to deliver the petition at 10 Downing Street calling for the #UK authorities not to extradite #Assange to the #US. Unfortunately, 10 Downing Street refused to accept it.
As his extradition hearing resumes, we call yet again for Julian Assange to be immediately released, the charges against him dropped, and for him to not be extradited to the #UnitedStates.

We fully believe the case against him is connected to his contributions to public interest reporting, and his prosecution has extremely worrying implications for press freedom and the protection of journalistic sources internationally.

@1yelocat @POTUS Yes, there were explosions & talking about it cost #BarryJennings his life

#911Truth #WTC7
@1yelocat @POTUS But back to #911Truth evidence. Testimony of the #CIA asset covering #Iraq & #Libya at @UN. Her pre-9/11 #intelligence for #WeThePeople

#Bush #Cheney #Rumsfeld KNEW about 9/11 in April 2001

9/11= #Iraq pretext

Any questions?

@SLindauer2011 @AbbyMartin
@1yelocat @POTUS @UN @SLindauer2011 @AbbyMartin I recommend to watch this to everyone who has spent 2 decades figuring out the #911Truth. I sent this many @nytimes to @FDNY firefighters; Patrick their colleague lost his best friend on 9/11. He talks about a phone call in the 'buncker' (°°) @AE911Truth

1/. On the 7th of September, Julian Assange is scheduled to appear court for the start of an extradition hearing that could take weeks before concluding.

The UK should not extradite #JulianAssange

The US should drop the changes against #Assange. PETITION…
2/. If extradited to the US, Julian Assange would face detention conditions that could amount to torture as well as the possibility of an unfair trial.

It is vital that the right to freedom of expression & access to information are protected. @wikileaks
3/. Under the Espionage Act, #Assange faces up to 175 years in prison.

This would set a dangerous precedent for all journalists who publish classified information of public interest.

Due to #COVID19 restrictions, Assange has not been able to see his lawyers for over 6 months.

Defence lawyer Edward Fitzgerald: The extradition is for political purposes and that’s prohibited under US/UK treaty.

#DontExtraditeAssange #Freepress #FreeAssange
Defence lawyer Edward Fitzgerald: This prosecution is not about criminal justice, it is due to underlying political motives of the US government.
Extraditing #Assange would also lead to "inhuman and degrading treatment," in the US prison system, his counsel tells the court, says mental condition could put him at risk of suicide.

Julian Assange’s detention “sets a dangerous precedent for journalists”, according to politicians from the Council of Europe’s parliamentary arm, who voted on Tuesday to oppose the WikiLeaks founder’s extradition to the US…
Labour peer and UK Rapporteur on #mediafreedom Lord Foulkes, ...had drafted an initial report – Threats to Media Freedom and Journalists’ Security in Europe – that will now contain amendments referring to Assange tabled by a number of European parliamentarians.
One of the amendments backs the recommendation of the UN special rapporteur on torture who called last year for Assange’s release and for extradition to the United States to be blocked.

'All info on associations with ********* & Assange'

More news on US DoJ v Bean—Google sent the full (redacted) Search & Seizure warrant & gag order on informing me of this targeted surveillance. Revealing full docs here:… #FreeAssange #DontExtraditeAssange
Excerpt from govt motion to seal the warrant: granted. 'Reason to believe notice will jeopardise investigation incl giving targets an opportunity to flee, destroy or tamper with evidence & intimidate witnesses.' Okay...

What was the US DoJ fishing for?

- aiding & abetting
- accessory after the fact
- misprision of a felony
- conspiracy
- false statements
- unauthorised access of protected computer
- obstruction of justice
- witness tampering
- wire fraud & conspiracy
- foreign contributions ban

Finally received my badge of honour with notice that Google have handed over "information related to [my] Google account" to the US DoJ.

You think Assange case is just about Assange? Think again. #FreeAssange #DontExtraditeAssange
Have emailed Google requesting the relevant order which prohibited them from previously notifying me about this. DoJ doc search to come. #FreeAssange
So, here's some further info on the US DoJ's investigation of me presumably for supporting Julian Assange and WikiLeaks.

Oh it's "SEALED v. SEALED; Case is not available to the public."

Article 4 of the Extradition Treaty between the UK and the USA states that: "Extradition shall not be granted if the offense for which extradition is requested is a political offense."

So why the hell is #JulianAssange behind bars pending extradition to the US? 1/5
The British govt's treatment of Julian Assange is a grotesque abuse of state power.

The circumstances of his incarceration are tantamount to torture.

The Extradition Treaty clearly doesn't apply in his case because his 'offence' was political, i.e. he exposed US war crimes. 2/5
Yesterday's proceedings at Westminster Magistrates Court for the case management hearing regarding the attempts to extradite #JulianAssange to the US, were both sinister and farcical. The events that unfolded in that courtroom brought our judicial system into disrepute. 3/5
