Following the Ecuadorian government's withdrawal of asylum, Julian Assange was arrested and removed from the country's embassy in London. He faces charges in the US of conspiracy to break into a computer, relating to Wikileaks' publication of more than 250,000 classified military documents and diplomatic cables in 2010. Should Assange be extradited to the US to face these charges? Was he doing a public service? Will he get a fair trial? Should he be sent to Sweden to face sexual assault charges instead?
Julian Assange should be extradited to the US
Assange should be extradited to the United States. He has committed crimes and should be held accountable.
Assange crossed the line between journalist and criminal
He is not a journalist or a truth-seeker but a criminal. His information-gathering methods were illegal.
