REPORT: UK minister signs off on US request to extradite Julian Assange

The UK’s interior minister has certified an extradition order that would send Julian Assange to the US on espionage charges — but the final decision on the embattled WikiLeaks founder rests with the courts.

British Home Secretary Sajid Javid told the BBC on Thursday that he has signed the order and that the courts will decide whether Assange must face charges in the US.

The article goes on to state the following:

Assange, 47, who is serving a 50-week sentence in London’s Belmarsh Jail for jumping bail in Britain, is scheduled to face an extradition hearing Friday on the US request. A decision is likely months away.

“I’m very pleased that the police were finally able to apprehend him and now he’s rightly behind bars because he broke UK law,” Javid told BBC radio.
