British High Court rules that Assange can seek Appeal to Supreme Court

category international | anti-war / imperialism | news report author Monday December 05, 2011 18:40author by Ciaron Report this post to the editors

Today, Veterans for Peace, Catholic Workers, Occupy London and other anti-war activists gathered outside the High Court in London in solidarity with WikiLeaks activist Julain Assange. Julian has spent the past 363 days in England under house arrest without charge. A secret U.S. Grand Jury continues to sit in Virginia pursuing indictments. Leading U.S. Republican Presidential candidate Newt Gringrich has stated "Julian Assange is engaged in terrorism. He should be treated as an enemy combatant." We believe the U.S., British, Swedish and Australian governments are planning to do just that! We are all weary of the war which has now entered its second decade. We need to question the lies of our war making governments, defend the human rights and offer solidarity to those resisters like Julian Assange and Bradley Manning who are being defamed and pursecuted for exposing the nature of these wars in which our governments remain complicit

***UK Indymedia Dec 5th. High Court rules that Assange can seek Appeal to Supreme Court

Julian Assange was back at the Royal Courts of Justice in London today seeking permission - from the High Court judges who dismissed his appeal against extradition in November - to take his case to the Supreme Court. They haven't actually allowed this, but they're allowing him to ask the Supreme Court directly for leave to appeal, on one of the two points raised.

THE ISSUES AND COURT RULING

The two points on which Assange's case was being made - that there are issues of 'general public importance' - are as follows:

1) Whether a European Arrest Warrant issued by a partisan prosecutor working for the executive (i.e. not an independent judge or investigating magistrate in the civil law system) is a valid Part 1 Warrant issued by a "judicial authority" within the meaning of sections 2(2) & 66 of the Extradition Act 2003?

* This point argues that the decision goes against parliamentary intent in the 2003 Extradition Act (see High Court Ruling).

2) Whether a person in respect of whom no decision to prosecute has been taken can be said to be ’accused’ within the meaning of sections 2(3)(a) of the Extradition Act 2003?

My understanding is that the second of these points was dismissed by the judges, but that they have allowed Assange to try to seek a ruling from the Supreme Court on the first point.

When looking for a free press, which is part of the liberation side of the story, you find Bradley Manning and Julian Assange upholding the banner of the new journalism that contains the truth, and has the courage to expose the lies and deceptions of the militarized embedded journalism of the monopoly captialist system globally. 

 After all, the anti-fascist fighters of the second world war did fight to dismantle the nazis-fascist war machine, and its 'big lie' propaganda machine.  These people should not be put in jail, and suppressed because they exposed war crimes.  Exposing war crimes is not a crime. 

The U.S. Judge that chaired the Nuremburg Trials (1945-46) wrote into intrnational law that the planning and doing of aggressive war is the 'SUPREME INTERNATIONAL CRIME' on the planet earth, as it actuates all other crimes high, low, big and small.  He further says it is the supreme international crime whether Germany does it or the U.S.A. does it. 

These two new heroes of the freedom of the press are both being prosecuted against the International laws of the second world war anti-fascist fighters.  Assange should not be sent to Sweden as that country has a vicious right-wing extremist group in power, and they have been supporting the unjust wars, and illegal violence of the U.S. Imperialists throughout the Holyland.  They have also been setting him up to be extradited to the U.S.A. 

Assange is an activist for the liberation side which is the anti-war movement.  He exposes the criminal behaviour of the U.S. Imperialist government.  Further he has been threatened with his life from right-wing extremists in the U.S.A.  He is not guilty of the crimes allegated against him, and is being fraudulently entrapped into the criminal justice system, just as the in U.S, and the western world, which they do to anti-war activists to criminalize their dissent, and jail them for life or so, to keep them out of the truth journalism that is taking place throughout the alternative media movement such as the IMC and wikileaks etc.  Workers of the world, unite!!  You've a world to win!! Free Assange and Manning!!
