The Julian Assange Case and the Supreme Court Appeal
On January 24 the UK’s High Court announced that it has certified a point of law for Julian Assange to be able to apply to appeal to the Supreme Court. The decision comes after Assange raised three points of law of general public importance that have an impact on the procedural and human rights safeguards of a wide range of other types of cases. However it’s still up to the Supreme Court to decide whether it will review the case.
Panelists include: Stella Moris, Julian Assange’s partner; Kristinn Hrafnsson, WikiLeaks editor-in-chief; Deepa Govindarajan, trade unionist; John Rees, author and activist; and Suzie Gilbert, filmmaker and actress.
