"Finally be brought to an end Mr Assange will now have the opportunity to contest the charges as Tim in open court onto how any extradition requests, considered by the judiciary is right. That we implement judicial process fairly and consistently. Would you respect for quality full? I commend this to the house. Thank you, Mr Speaker the headset which I fo- his account of sense on this how sweet grandstands Julian Assange will be able to access medical catch eaten some facilities because there have been worrying reports about his own house. Of course at this point. This is all a matter for the cool. But on this side of the house, we won't to make the point that the reason we are debating Julian Assange this afternoon. Eason's those the only charging you my face in this country is in relation to his bail hearings. The reason we are debating this afternoon is entirely to do with the whistle. Blowing activities of Julian Assange Mckee. It is this whistleblowing. I two interleague wolves mass murder murder civilians and crops on a grand scale that I put Julian Assange in the cross has of the US administration. Is this reason that they have once more issued an extradition wants against Mr Assange sexually will note that Mr Assange complaints, the UN he was being unlawfully detained as he could not throwing embassy without being arrested. And in February sixteen the UN panel ruled in his favor stating that he had been detained and should be allowed to free and compensated for professional liberty liberty, Mr. Sohn's health. I can victory. Hoover decision binding fought the foreign office responded by saying this ruling changes nothing. I know it was the phone of spoons, not the home of this all the ministry of Justice has noticed. Ability and the next session this country. But it is of course, interested in relations with allies and others. We have precedents in this country relation to request for extradition to the US when the US authorities, raise issues of hacking and national security, I would remind the house of the case of guy MacKinnon in October twenty twelve when the count prime minister was home secretary an extradition request very similar for this was refused. And we should recall what we actually disclose who Pinza got the Pentagon video slippage mixon attack in she saw some seven which killed eighteen civilians and two Reuters journalists it is the monumental amounts of lake such as this that lifted the veil on US led military operation in a variety of sitters. None of which has produced. A faithful outcome from the people of those countries Julian Assange is not being pushed you to protect U S national security, he's being pushy because he is exposed wrongdoing by US administrations and then military forces, and we only have to look at the treatment to choke. You might see what awaits in. If he's extradited to the US MS manning has already been on unconsummated between two thousand to two thousand seventeen she was originally sentenced to thirty five years. How indefinite detention now is because she refuses to participate in partial disclosure, which would allow whistle blast perceive. Not the right this and for human rights protections as a transgender woman has been completely ignored. Human rights as a transgender woman have been completely ignored. And I would hope members on the. The other side of the house would take that seriously, and it has to do with Julian Assange case is this could be the type of treatment that he could expect if he's extradited to the US in this country. We have protection for whistle blows, including the public interest to close disclose run nine thousand nine hundred and others. Even if some of failed is protections should be more robust underpinning, this legislation is the correct premise not that anyone can leak anything. I like that. There should be protection. Afforded to those take possible risk to disclose wrongdoing with that disclosure serves the public interest. Julia scientists risk of traditions to the US precisely because on this side of the house. We believe his disclosed material that is in the operas public interest. This is now. In the hands of the British little CU we have the utmost confidence in the British legal system. But we would say on this side of the house. We would be very concerned that on the basis of what we know Julian Assange was extradited to.

Jennifer Robinson tweeted this morning, quote, just confirmed Assange has been arrested not just for breach of bail conditions but also in relation to a US extradition request. She wrote press. Freedom advocates condemned Assange arrest, Julian Assange, is US attorney Barry Pollack said. Quote, it's bitterly disappointing that a country would allow someone to whom it is extended citizenship and asylum to be arrested in its embassy. First and foremost, we hope that the UK will now give Mr Assange access to proper healthcare, which he has been denied for seven years once healthcare needs have been addressed the U K courts will need to resolve. What appears to be an unprecedented effort by the United States seeking to extradite of foreign journalists to face criminal charges for publishing truthful information, Barry Pollack wrote that's Julian Assange is US attorney Chris stuff law the head of reporters without borders tweeted, targeting Assange, because of Wicky leaks provision of information to journalists that was in the public interest would be a punitive measure and would set a dangerous precedent for journalists or their sources that the US may wish to pursue in future. Unquote, NSA whistle blower Edward Snowden. Tweeted images of Ecuador's on Basseterre, inviting the UK secret police into the embassy to drag a publisher of like it or not award winning journalist out of the building are going to end up in the history books. Assan just critics may cheer. But this is a dark moment for press freedom, those that is the tweet of Edward Snowden. We begin today's show with Renault Avila. A member of Julian Assange is legal team. We're not to thank you so much for joining us. This has just taken place the arrest the dragging out of Julian Assange from the Ecuadoran embassy by the metropolitan police in Britain. Can you tell us what you understand are the grounds for his arrest? And why the Ecuadoran embassy allowed the British police into the embassy to do it? Thank you for having me and thank you for older solidarity that you're showing us a journalist on like you trade like on top of all of this going on. I have seen the lack of solely that gasoline already from journalists all over the world, and that is making the situation worse. I the rest is some breaches international law at so many levels, and as a Latin American I can say shame of these block them. These regard for the most one of the which is tradition of Latin America of throw by the undefended institution of Silom. What happened next? It is what we suspect scenes Michael Rodna was leaving the sense of union Assange backing. That this was what we predicted need to happen as we predicted it. This Swedish case was not thin else. But on excuse to secure the rest of your A-List in a western democracy, so-called democracy. So. West confirmed by Scotland Yard that his rest is not connected with the bail breach. It is going to extradition requests. Swedish authorities had Joost now brisk in Sweden's soco and they confirm eighties. Eighties was not consulted with them. It is not related to the case. Eight is an extradition requested by the US Justice department. They're not can you explain is it in any way, legally justified or legal at all for Ecuador to rescind his asylum in this way is completely on top an insult to injury. Jillian was on Ecuador in nationality. So it is not only legal. Before their national low is not constitutional before constitutional law, neck, whether so. Multiple multi-layer by elation of human rights and constitutional rights of Julian Glenn Greenwald is joining us on the phone Renat availa is joining us from Belgrade right now. She is one of Julian Assange is lawyers going Greenwald, the Pulitzer prize winning journalist, one of the founding editors of the intercept Glenn your response to the arrest of Julian Assange is being dragged out of the Ecuadoran embassy by British police today. I think the most important fact is that the arrest warrant, according to Saunders longtime lawyer John Robinson is based on alligators of that Sanjiv cooked inspired or collaborated with Chelsea Manning with their guard, TV two thousand and ten leaks of Iraq and Afghanistan logs diplomatic cables theory that the Obama just department tried for a long time to pursue but found no evidence for in order to be able to justify prosecuting Assange and not face the accusation that they were in day during freedoms by prosecuting songs. There's something near times and the guardian and every other media outlet in the world routinely. Does just published classified information, even if it were true that's on collaborated with manning gin, the department of prize ma-ma everywhere in but in for that it would still be a grave threat to press freedoms. Because. Analysts all the time work with their sources in order to obtain cross fight information. So that they can report on it. It's the criminalization of journalism by the Trump Justice department and the gravest threat to prostate him by far the Trump presidency infinitely worse than having Donald Trump tweet mean things about various reporters at CNN or NBC, and every journalist in the world should be raising our voices loudly as possible to protest the no. And can you explain Glenn exactly what you understand? A why it is that the Ecuadoran embassy has revoked the asylum allowing the British authorities to come inside what's going on with precedent Marino and his charges that Julian Assange was involved in releasing photos, which Assange has vehemently denied. Why interviewed former President Rafael Correa late last year? And he, of course, did something quite extraordinary which was for six years that up for Dorian sovereignty and free international law and refuse to be bullied by the US and the UK which tried everything could to coerce him or threaten him to drop asylum protection for signs. She was very unusual eater. He a small country who famously said, for example, if the US wants to have military bases and Ecuador they have to allow us to have military bases in Miami key was against imperialism, and allowing Ecuador to be a vassal state of US u k and his successor, president Marino got the opposite. So the Trump administration the CIA the UK and Spain which is really angry about what leaks is. Didn't of they're abusive protesters during the Catalonian debate kept spent the last year and a half doing everything they can threatening Ecuador offering rewards to Ecuador doing everything they could to coerce Ecuador under president Marino descending, president Cray or refused to do which is violated international law. Withdraw Julian Assange is asylum. And of course, he needed to concoct an excuse to do it. So he doesn't look like what he is very weak and submissive leader to his to population. So they made up a bunch of excuses. But the reality is they did it because the US UK demanded that they do Ecuadorian president Lennon what I know when he announced a Sanchez arrest Thursday, and he said Britain has guaranteed. He will not be extradited Assange will not be extradited to a country that has the death penalty. Today announced that the discourteous an aggressive behavior of Mr. Julian Assange, let to the hostile and threatening declarations of its allied organization against Ecuador, and especially the transgression of international treaties of led the situation to a point where the Silom of Mr. sawn is unsustainable. And no longer viable in line with our strong commitment to human rights and international law. I request in Great Britain to guarantee that Mr. Sohn's mill city would not be extradited to a country where you could face torture or the death penalty, the British government has confirmed it in writing in accordance with its own rules. So that's Ecuadorian president Lennon would I know speaking just a few hours ago today, a severe not of Ella. Could you respond to what a Modano said? And whether you think it's likely that Assange will not be expedited as he said. Well, this is this is repeating the same things that we have been fighting against what is the between dust penalty and life in solitary confinement in supermax petitioning in the US was description. Here's the Sooners of the penalty of urinal is being prosecuted because. Act of publishing, but whether urinals shoot be prosecuted or not because of the ACTA publishing. So that's what that's really Ribble. Assad to see. Clucking medical leader abdicating to super power and. Throwing even principles the trashcan in this in this case. We'd be I mean, I can note the alert in all journalists not only in the US any your Malysz reporting about the use of the business of this case, we've not rally we do not take this boggle as a central Bader battled for our freedom of expression. We'd be in serious trouble. So the hearing is taking place this afternoon. The first curing Julian. We really hope to get as much as possible and at the engine and coherence with your principles and. Basically him, but the because the first nationalist facing this. He might not be the last you might be the next one anyone hewing show. So it's it is the free press ski democracy. And this is what these at risk of the moment. Glenn greenwald. I want to ask you the American. Civil Liberties Union has just issued a statement Ben Wizner saying that the prosecution of a Sanjiv is especially troubling because prosecuting of foreign publisher for violating use secrecy laws would set and especially dangerous president precedent for US journalists who routinely violate foreign secrecy laws to deliver information vital to the public's interest. Glenn greenwald. Can you respond to that? I mean, what US journalists do and a regarding this foreign secrecy laws. Well, I think that is one of the remarkable aspects of this who've that Julian Assange, not an American citizen. I think he visited the ones for about three days aches foreign-based media organization. So the idea that the US government can just extend its reach to any new outlet anywhere in the world and criminalize publication of documentary or working with sources is extremely chilling. That would mean, for example that China or North Korea or Ron could do the same thing if the US news outlet published it secrets, which sometimes they do it would mean that around but have the ability or China to issue an international arrest warrant and demand that the reporters who work for the US news outlets be extradited to those countries, we're gonna break and then come back to our discussion. The latest news Julian Assange has been a. Sted by the British police taken out of the Ecuadoran embassy at the invitation of the president of Ecuador he will appear in court. There are reports later today also reports the home secretary will address house of Commons. We've been speaking with or not Avila in Belgrade Serbia, a member of Julian Assange is legal team human rights lawyer wall. So Glenn Greenwald on the phone with us. Joining us from your addition, aero, Brazil Pulitzer prize winning journalist, and when we come back. We'll also be joined by Justin Radic attorney for whistle blowers. Former Justice department attorney serves director of the whistle blower and source protection at expose facts. This is democracy. Now, stay with us. Too

Finally, WikiLeaks circulated a confidential legal memo to several news outlets outlining one hundred forty false and defamatory things. They should stop saying about WikiLeaks. And Julian Assange, the communique was probably prompted by reporting in the guardian where stories about Mr Assange is alleged meetings with then candidate Donald Trump's campaign operatives are being strongly denied by WikiLeaks. The confidential legal memo foreseeably leaked as soon as received may be read full and unredacted at ars Technica and elsewhere. The times of London is among those papers sniffing at the irony of leaks, pleading privacy and confidentiality, but in fairness to the house of leaks. We must say that having read their memo, it really is protesting inaccuracy not intrusiveness. Among the misapprehensions WikiLeaks. His lawyers are particularly concerned to correct are the following that Mr Assange is a paid Russian agent that WikiLeaks has members like al-qaeda as opposed to employees ease like the ones any legitimate media outlet would have and that Mr Assange, not only hates the United States. But also bleach his hair and neglects his cat. So not a bene, Mr. and MRs United States, Mr. Sohn's loves you. Where's his own unredacted hair and is good to his Catt?.
