In an epic show of submission to the U.S., Ecuador will be illegally taking Assange’s belongings on Monday and turning them over to the U.S. to go through and use as evidence against Assange. The whole procedure has been nothing but a violation of human rights since March of 2018 when Assange was essentially silenced and put in solitary confinement for 8 months. This illegal search and seizure will not allow either Assange’s lawyers or a U.N. official to be present.
The whole procedure has resulted in Ecuador getting a 4.6 billion dollar IMF loan from the U.S. and new trade deals from the U.K. and the United States. Never has there been such an economical trade in order to destroy a journalist in history as what they are doing to silence this messenger.
According to the Sky News article seen here:
Two of Assange’s manuscripts are said to be among the items.
WikiLeaks, said: “On Monday Ecuador will perform a puppet show at the embassy of Ecuador in London for their masters in Washington, just in time to expand their extradition case before the UK deadline on 14 June.
“The Trump administration is inducing its allies to behave like it’s the Wild West.”
This truly is a disgusting display of government overreach, human rights infringement and privacy encroachment.
“The Trump administration is inducing its allies to behave like it’s its allies to behave like it’s the Wild West.”
Baltasar Garzon, international legal co-ordinator for the defence of Assange and WikiLeaks, said: “It is extremely worrying that Ecuador has proceeded with the search and seizure of property, documents, information and other material belonging to the defence of Julian Assange, which Ecuador arbitrarily confiscated, so that these can be handed over to the the agent of political persecution against him, the United States.
“It is an unprecedented attack on the rights of the defence, freedom of expression and access to information exposing massive human rights abuses and corruption. We call on international protection institutions to intervene to put a stop to this persecution.”
It has become obvious it is up to the public to fight this corruptuon of law and tell our leaders no more. We need to raise our voices and scream it from the rooftops. If we allow Assange to be treated in such a vicious, deplorable manner, the next person could be a loved one or even you.
