Stella Assange fears WikiLeaks’ Julian will be sent to country where ‘assassination plot’

British Home Secretary Priti Patel has approved the extradition of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange to the United States for leaking classified military documents, the Guardian reported.

The Australian editor’s wife, Stella Assange, said on social media she feared he would be sent to a country “planning to assassinate him” and encouraged support from followers.

The group immediately issued a statement saying it would appeal the decision to the High Court.

U.S. authorities want Assange on 18 counts, including one count of espionage, in connection with a trove of classified U.S. military records and diplomatic cables released by WikiLeaks, which they say put his life at risk.

Stella Assange fears husband will be sent to ‘assassination plot’ country

After British Home Secretary Priti Patel approved the extradition of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange to the United States, the Australian editor’s wife took to Twitter to disagree.

Stella Morris, Julian Assange’s partner and mother of two sons, claims the US ‘planned his assassination’ on her tweet:

“Home Secretary Priti Patel has given the go-ahead to send Julian #Assange to the country where he was plotted to assassinate him. Shout out. Halls are harder. Don’t stop until he’s free! “

The Guardian has previously said senior CIA officials during the Trump administration discussed kidnapping and even assassinating Julian Assange, according to reports from former US officials.

In social media posts, @StellaMoris1 Fundraising outlets have also been contacted to provide financial assistance for extradition.

Campaign Costs Platform states: “Journalism is not a crime. Donations help us stop Julian Assange’s illegal extradition.” Legal costs support “Julian Assange’s High Court against extradition.”

WikiLeaks Appeal Statement

Assange, 50, will appeal his extradition from the UK to the US. He has 14 days to appeal to the High Court in London, from where he can also appeal to the UK Supreme Court, but if his case is dropped then he must be extradited within 28 days.

International nonprofit WikiLeaks immediately issued a statement saying it would appeal the decision in the High Court:

“Today is not the end of the battle. It is just the beginning of a new legal battle. We will appeal through the legal system; the next appeal will be in the High Court.”

The statement also recommends:

“Julian did nothing wrong. He did not commit a crime, nor was he a criminal. He was a journalist and a publisher, and he was punished for his work.”

Julian Assange Wikileaks saga explained

The saga surrounding Julian Assange was sparked in 2010, when WikiLeaks published a series of leaks about ex-US soldier Chelsea Manning. According to The Guardian, more than 250,000 US diplomatic cables were also exposed, containing classified diplomatic analysis from world leaders. The U.S. government has launched a criminal investigation into the leaks.

In 2010, Assange was issued an arrest warrant over two allegations of sexual assault in Sweden. Britain ruled he should be extradited to Sweden.

In August 2012, he entered the Ecuadorian embassy in London and applied for political asylum because he feared that if he was extradited to Sweden, he would be extradited to the United States.

He finally left the embassy in 2019. Julian Assange was arrested in the UK for escaping bail and ended up in jail in southeast London, according to iNews. The extradition process for him to the United States then began.

His supporters say he is an anti-establishment hero victimized by his exposure of U.S. wrongdoing in the conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq, and his indictment is a politically motivated attack on journalism and free speech.
