High Court’s decision on Assange

Yesterday it was announced in the UK that the High Court allowed the US appeal to reverse an order not to extradite Julian Assange, which we can read about for example in The Indicter. This is top news around the world, for example on DW, which interviewed Nils Melzer. However, it is remarkable how quiet some organizations are, which otherwise work for the protections of human rights. This can be seen especially in Sweden, one of the vassal states involved in the persecution of Assange. For example, at the time of writing this post, we cannot find is a word about the High Court’s decicion when we look at the web pages of the Amnesty Sweden, Civil Rights Defenders and UNA Sweden. Meanwhile, Amnesty International calls the High Court’s decicion a “travesty of justice”.
