The U.S. government has delivered it’s formal extradition warrant to the U.K. officials. This makes it unlikely their will be any more formal charges as they had until June 14TH to finalize the warrant. Under the extradition treaty between the U.K. and the U.S. it is not allowed to extradite for political reasons. These indictments are definitely of that variety.
The treaty also disallows the U.S. to formally charge him with any more indictments. Assange faces 170 years in prison if found guilty of espionage . This is a preposterous amount of time for publishing documents in the public interest.
Assange is currently on the hospital ward at Belmarsh prison and was too ill to attend a court hearing last week.
