Julian Assange’s Mother Christine in London Awaiting Final Verdict From the Supreme CourtMay 30, 2012 • By Cask J. Thomson
Christine Assange, mother of Wikileaks’ Julian Assange has arrived in London in advance of her sons’ last legal bid against extradition to Sweden, where he is more liable to the government authorities.
Swedish district attorneys want to interrogate Julian Assange over the claims of sexual assault made by two female former Wikileaks volunteers. So far, he is reached over 500 days without a single charge – despite what the media may try and convince to society.
The Supreme Court, which is the UK’s highest court, will express whether it agrees with his argument that the arrest warrant below which his deportation is sought after is invalid.
We spoke to Christine this morning and wished her and Julian all the best, but one could only imagine how she is feeling at this moment in time.
Assange is wanted in Sweden for questioning over allegations of rape and sexual assault, claims that Christine Assange says are unsubstantiated. The circumstances surrounding his alleged sexual assault are suspicious as he remains a menace to shady governments.
Christine Assange articulated that she fears that her son’s extradition to Stockholm could open a door, allowing the United States to take control and hunt him on possible espionage or conspiracy charges.
She said that waiting for the court’s decision is absolutely dreadful.
“It’s a 24-hour nightmare because we know he is not safe, and the biggest governments in the world are gunning for him,”
She told us that she fears her son will be put into an undetermined detention and solitary confinement before he’s even questioned or charged, but the US would have additional plans in store for him.
“He could be put into indefinite pre-trial detention in a military prison,”
I have to acknowledge that Christine Assange has been very supportive and upset over the future of her son, and although Julian is going to be 41 years of age this July, what some would call “mummy’s boy” goes to show the true emotional devastation this whole ordeal is causing.
As a resident, I see the world looking to Australia for answers to why the country has failed to intervene.
It’s obvious the blood is one somebody’s hands – but who will be punished for it?
