Waters agrees. “We all know for positive that he dedicated no crime,” he instructed RT. “All he did was report the information.”

If that’s against the law then we should always lock up the editorial boards of the New York Instances and everybody else…the entire thing is a whole sham.

Waters referred to as on Biden and his administration to drop the costs, which may see Assange face 175 years behind bars if extradited and convicted. “The query [the administration is] being requested to make a judgment about is as clear as day,” he instructed RT. “He actually hasn’t dedicated espionage, or any crime that may very well be prosecuted in the USA.”

With Biden and his staff apparently content material to disregard the Assange case for now, Assange’s fiancee Stella Moris, Geneva Mayor Frederique Perler, and UN Particular Rapporteur on Torture Nils Melzer joined the refrain calling for the journalist’s launch final week, with Melzer calling Assange’s incarceration “one of many largest judicial scandals in historical past.”
