UK Home Sec kick-starts U.S. request to extradite ex-WikiLeaker Assange

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange UK Home Sec kick-starts U.S. request to extradite ex-WikiLeaker Assange

"We have received the full extradition request, which has been certified by the Home Secretary".

Sajid Javid told BBC's Radio 4: "The final decision is now with the courts".

The Home Secretary revealed on BBC Radio 4 that he had "signed and certified" the extradition order in advance of a court hearing in London tomorrow when it is expected the U.S. will detail all the charges against the Wikileaks founder.

Assange opposes the extradition request.

Assange will face charges that he conspired to hack government computers and violated an espionage law.

The WikiLeaks founder is due to appear via video link before Westminster Magistrates' Court on Friday for a case management hearing after the U.S. requested his extradition.

After that, assuming a district judge (full-time professional magistrate) OKs the extradition, Javid himself will make the final decision on whether or not to send the one-time chief WikiLeaker to America, as UK.gov's website explains.

He is now serving a 50-week sentence in jail for skipping bail when he entered the embassy in 2012.

He said it was a decision for the courts over whether Assange should be extradited.

The senior Pakistani-origin minister said the final decision now lies with the United Kingdom courts to analyse if the case meets all the tests required for Mr. Assange's extradition to the U.S.

The 47-year-old had been sheltering in Ecuador's embassy in London for seven years until his arrest on April 11 when Quito finally withdrew his asylum.

"He is accused of offences including computer misuse and the unauthorised disclosure of national defence information".

The "first real confrontation of arguments" in court will not be for several weeks or months, according to WikiLeaks editor Kristinn Hrafnsson.

Mr Assange is now serving a 50-week sentence for skipping bail in 2012 and fleeing to the Ecuadorean embassy, where he stayed for almost seven years.

The 18 charges against Mr Assange reject his claim he was simply a publisher receiving leaked material - which would be protected under press freedom legislation.
