How Brexit set Julian Assange Free
In February, a UN Working Group found that Sweden and the UK were violating Assange’s rights by detaining him without charge, and called for his release and compensation.
“The Working Group on Arbitrary Detention considers that the various forms of deprivation of liberty to which Julian Assange has been subjected constitute a form of arbitrary detention,” said the group’s head, Seong-Phil Hong.
“The Working Group maintains that the arbitrary detention of Mr. Assange should be brought to an end, that his physical integrity and freedom of movement be respected, and that he should be entitled to an enforceable right to compensation,” Hong added.
Brexit is potentially a means to an end for the Wikileaks founder as the warrant is valid only in member states of the EU, however, it is unclear when or how Britain’s separation from the EU will be carried out.
There will be several different repercussions pertaining to Britain leaving the European Union. This is one more win for the free world. Brexit set Julian Assange free because tyrannical EU rulings are no longer relevant.
