When will Julian Assange go free?

 

On 30 November 2016, the United Nations rejected the United Kingdom’s attempt to appeal the UN’s February ruling in favour of Julian Assange.

The decision therefore stands and the UK and Sweden are once again required to immediately put an end to Mr. Assange’s arbitrary detention and afford him monetary compensation. https://justice4assange.com/?rejects

That's just the UN playing their role as the complaint department for the US empire which pays half their bills. The British know who is paying the bills and will ignore any complaints the US tells them to. The case actually highlights why many conservatives in the US want to do away with the UN altogether and start cracking the whip on all the complaints. Its the best justice that money can buy and Assange's real sin is he didn't support money in a time when the average American is perfectly content to have their government trample all over their own constitution so long as they get some of the things they want. Americans just hate a loser even if they were defending everything their constitution stands for.

Would that mean dropping the rape charge? I thought his "arbitrary detention" was self-imposed sanctuary from criminal prosecution.

According to what can be found on google, he chose to go to the Ecuador Embassy to avoid being prosecuted for rape in Sweden, and (according to google/Wikipedia) from Sweden, it will just be a hop, skip and jump for them to extradite him to the US...where he faces prosecution for treason.

 

So...I also don't understand "freeing" J Assange.  He chose this path.  

 

ALSO - Assange originally had 2 charges - for rape and sexual assault.  The assault allegation was dropped ONLY because the time limit had run out.  The rape charge still stands.  However, if he continues to hide away that charge will have to be dropped in 2020.  

 

I've always heard where there is smoke there is fire.

Well, then...let's see...He will hide out and wait to be extradited here when Trump is in office, and that almost guarantees him a pardon, and then we get stuck with this bastard, too. ...and Trump's SWAMP keeps getting bigger and bigger. WONDERFUL!.

yep...that's exactly how I see it happening.

 

Trump LOVES the swamp...as his cabinet picks reflect IMO... Assange would be a worthy addition.  He'll probably be named head of NSA under Trump.

This article clarifies a bit:

 

Assange still faces potential charges of rape in Sweden — but no complaint has yet been filed. Most notably, he faces extradition to the United States — where it is widely believed he would be charged with espionage.

Now, Julian Assange has the unimpeded right to walk away from the Ecuadorian Embassy that has graciously provided asylum to the arbitrarily detained Wikileaks founder without fear of being arrested and taken into custody — at least theoretically.

Without grounds for further appeal, the British and Swedish governments are left without tangible justification for continuing to tacitly force Assange to remain secreted inside his haven in London.

But it remains to be seen what, precisely, will happen next.

At this time, Julian Assange, Donald Trump, and Barack Obama are tied in Time Magazine's Person Of The Year Poll.

 

They are ahead of Hillary, but way behind Narendra Modi.
