Assange brings ‘proof’ of CIA assassination plot to court

 February 24, 2024

Assange's legal team has informed the High Court in London that they had evidence that there was a scheme to abduct or kill Julian Assange.

According to the defendant's representation, the attempt was made by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) during the presidency of Donald Trump to kill or abduct him while he was living in the Ecuadorian embassy in London.

This information was reported by the BBC, covering the ongoing prosecution of the well-known figure, as reported by Crikey. The idea that changes made to government agencies during the Trump administration could have diverted that plan has taken hold among some in the conservative movement.

The Accusations

According to the allegations made by attorney Mark Summers, senior CIA officials requested plans, President Trump asked means to carry out the plan, and "sketches were even drawn up."

The investigation into whether or not a Spanish security firm spied on him over those seven years is currently being conducted by a court in Spain.

According to The Guardian, Assange's team also sent a warning about the possibility of "extra-legal attack elimination" in the United States, particularly in the event that Trump takes office once more.

The reason that Assange did not appear in court or make a video appearance was because he was too psychologically and physically ill to do so.

Legal Arguments

His legal team is fighting his extradition to the United States to face allegations of espionage; if the appeal is denied, his legal options in the United Kingdom will be utilized up.

As the Beeb points out, however, only a small number of individuals were allowed to observe the proceedings, and the audio feed that journalists received was not very reliable.

According to the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC), the family of the Chinese-Australian democratic blogger Yang Hengjun has stated that he would not appeal his suspended death sentence. The reason for this is that he is too sick to appeal, and Beijing's legal system is not "capable of remedying the injustice of his sentence" anyhow.

In a courtroom that was closed to the public, he was found guilty of espionage after serving five years in prison. His sentence could be increased to life in prison once he has been in good behavior for two years.

Push for Medical Parole

On the other hand, his companion admitted that he was hoping for medical parole or humanitarian release due to the fact that Yang has a huge kidney cyst.

"Harsh conditions in the detention center, including enforced sleep deprivation, erratic medication, and being strapped to a tiger chair," the family also mentioned in their statement.

Penny Wong, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, expressed her understanding of the challenging decision to not appeal, and she stated that all of us will continue to fight for him throughout this "harrowing" process.

The Arctic "Polar Wolf" correctional colony, which is where former Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny passed away, has now become the subject of a story that has been published by the ABC. This narrative is both interesting and gut-wrenching.
