US To Demand UK HC To Extradite Wikileaks Founder Julian Assange

In the latest development, the United States government has decided to appeal a British Judge to overturn the last decision and extradite Wikileaks founder Julian Assange to the US. In January, UK district Judge Vanessa Baraitser had rejected the extradition request saying Assange's security may be compromised in the US. Notably, Assange is accused of releasing 5,00,000 secret files related to the Afghanistan and Iraq Military campaigns.
