The Australian Greens have urged the Government to take immediate action to prevent the onward extradition of WikiLeaks editor-in-chief Julian Assange from Sweden to the United States.

"Mr Assange now faces a further two weeks in legal limbo as his team explores avenues to appeal the decision to extradite him to Sweden," said Greens communications spokesperson Senator Scott Ludlam.

"The Australian Government has turned its back on Mr Assange, despite the unprecedented action of Swedish prosecutors seeking an extradition order simply for questioning."

30 May 2012

The Government are neglecting their duties to Australian citizen Julian Assange by failing to disclose information on his potential extradition to the US, the Australian Greens said today.

"Today in Senate Estimates I asked Foreign Affairs Minister Bob Carr and his department if the Australian Government had sought advice on whether the US Government is seeking to extradite Julian Assange," said Greens communications spokesperson Senator Scott Ludlam. "I was repeatedly told that the Australian government "was not aware of any evidence" of a sealed indictment on Assange."

"This is fairly simple code for ‘nothing has officially been put in writing'.
