Biden administration to continue to seek extradition of Julian Assange – are they likely to succeed? P&P’s extradition specialist Nick Vamos discusses

Last month, a British judge ruled that Julian Assange should not be extradited to the US citing harsh conditions for prisoners in American jails. Nick Vamos says that Assange’s extradition was only barred on a single ground which is that it will be oppressive to his mental health and also at risk of suicide if he were to be extradited. Will the US administration be able to give some specific assurance about the conditions under which he will be kept when the case goes to appeal? Listen here.
