An Open Letter to the Parliament of the UK Regarding Julian Assange

Dear Sirs/Madams:

In recent days, it was announced via media that Parliament will be voting on the possible release of Julian Assange. I feel this would be a great relief to your government financially as well as gaining respect from your constituents.  It has been over 7 years since this started and it is time for this nonsense to come to an end.  Looking at the case as it stands, detaining him further makes a mockery of your honorable government and places you in a corner.

Continuing to guard the Ecuadorian Embassy with police officers who are funded by the government is simply a bad decision and a waste of tax money.  The citizens of the UK deserve that money to be towards their safety and Julian Assange simply is no threat whatsoever to anyone.

Besides, the UN has ruled his detainment to be inhumane as he receives no sunlight, fresh air or proper exercise.  This simply should be viewed as an embarrassment. It would certainly be in the best interest of the government and the people to allow him safe passage to his place of political asylum. Simply put, the constant surveillance is an eyesore and a thorn in your side.

It would be a terrible travesty if, for any reason, Julian Assange should fall ill in the Embassy and would tarnish the UK’s reputation.  Please take these things into consideration and release this refugee.

Thank you.
