Assange’s extradition hearing to the United States will take place on September 7 in the United Kingdom

The trial for the United States’ extradition request from Wikileaks founder Julian Assange takes place in the United Kingdom on September 7, where he remains in prison for violating probation terms.

Hearings about his possible transfer to the United States should have started in May, but have been postponed due to the cessation of legal activity in the United Kingdom due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Then the Westminster Magistrates Court expected it to try to hold them in September, and this Wednesday Wikileaks confirmed via Twitter that they would start “in a court to be determined” on the 7th of this month.

The U.S. Department of Justice accuses Assange of conspiring with former analyst Chelsea Manning to release thousands of secret documents about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan that Wikileaks published in 2010.
