Who Is Ola Bini? Swedish Developer Who Visited Assange Arrested In Ecuador

Protest outside Assange trial at Westminster Magistrates Court

"We will do everything we can to get the prosecutors to reopen the Swedish investigation so that Assange can be extradited to Sweden and be prosecuted for rape".

The letter, co-ordinated by Labour MPs Jess Phillips and Stella Creasy and signed by cross-party members and peers, reads: "We do not presume guilt, of course, but we believe due process should be followed and the [Swedish] complainant should see justice be done".

The WikiLeaks co-founder was dramatically arrested on Thursday at the Ecuadorian embassy in London where he had been holed up for nearly seven years.

But within 60 days from Thursday, when British police bundled Assange out of the Ecuadorean embassy in London where he had taken refuge seven years ago, USA authorities must submit a formal request outlining all the legal charges Assange would face if he is transferred into US custody.

The MPs note that the investigation in Sweden was "discontinued only because of Assange's unavailability" while he was inside the Ecuadorian embassy in London.

Prosecutors said they were looking again at the case after a request by the lawyer of the alleged victim.

With Assange facing extradition proceedings and up to five years in federal prison on the United States computer hacking charge, shadow home secretary Diane Abbott told BBC Radio 4's Today programme that the UK should resist handing him over.

Assange's mother, Christine Assange, also took to Twitter to defend her son, who she said was "sick and in pain from prolonged detention and torture".

WikiLeaks founder Assange, 47, is facing rape and sexual assault allegations in Sweden.

Barr: I need to explore spying on the Trump campaign
Kardashian West visited the White House a year ago and convinced President Trump to commute Johnson's sentence. Barr modified his language, saying, "I want to make sure there was no unauthorized surveillance".

She said they had not received any prior notice of it and called on Swedish authorities to reopen the case.

"I don't think politicians should be saying he should or should not be. extradited", he said.

A spokesman for the Swedish Prosecution Authority said they were following the news of Assange's arrest.

According to a criminal indictment against Assange which prosecutors in Virginia secretly obtained more than a year ago but only unsealed after Assange's arrest, Assange is charged with conspiring with former Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning to gain unauthorized access to a government computer.

He was arrested Thursday after Ecuador withdrew his asylum.

Assange denies the allegation.

A law change following the case of accused cyber-hacker Gary McKinnon, who has Asperger's, shifted responsibility away from ministers to the courts after then-home secretary Theresa May intervened to stop his extradition to the U.S. in 2012.

Assange received a verbal rebuke in his first London court appearance Thursday afternoon when District Judge Michael Snow found him guilty of breaching his bail conditions.

In a Friday interview with CNN, U.S. Vice President Mike Pence said the United States was "going to bring Julian Assange to justice".
