  • The prospective extradition of Julian Assange raises worries for the rights of future whistleblowers and investigative journalists, according to UN human rights leader Michelle Bachelet, who made this statement on Saturday. Assange's legal battle is still supported by bitcoin backers, and since Assange has been imprisoned in London since 2019, Wikileaks has amassed hundreds of thousands of dollars in cryptocurrency assets.

    The attempt by the United States to extradite Assange "raises concerns regarding media freedom," according to the UN human rights chief.
    The United States wants Wikileaks founder Julian Assange extradited to the country for disclosing secret information obtained from Chelsea Manning, a U.S. Army intelligence analyst. The U.S. government opened a thorough criminal investigation into Assange after Wikileaks released the documents Cablegate, the Afghanistan war logs, the Iraq war logs, and the movie "Collateral Murder." The allegations came from the information that Manning gave, and when the federal authorities unveiled an indictment against Assange, they were the cause. Assange is charged with breaking the 1917 Espionage Act.

    Along with Alexander Berkman, Emma Goldman, Daniel Ellsberg, Chelsea Manning, and Edward Snowden, Assange is the latest person to be accused of violating the Espionage Act of 1917. While Assange received asylum from Ecuador in 2012, he was pulled from the Ecuadorian embassy in London on April 11, 2019, and has since been fighting extradition to the United States. The UN's human rights director, Michelle Bachelet, has expressed reservations about extraditing Assange to the US this week.

    According to Jennifer Robinson, one of Assange's attorneys, the matter will be sent to the European Court of Human Rights. The Wikileaks founder is allegedly being "prosecuted and punished for his political ideas," according to Assange's attorneys. After Bachelet's opening remarks, the UN human rights chief declared that her office will be keeping an eye on the whistleblower's case.

    In light of the situation, Bachelet told the media, "I would like to underscore the significance of ensuring respect [for] Mr. Assange's human rights, in particular the right to a fair trial and due process guarantees in this matter." My office will keep an eye on Assange's case, I promise.

    Wikileaks raises thousands of dollars in Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, and other cryptocurrencies.
    Since 2010, Wikileaks has promoted cryptocurrencies and welcomed donations in bitcoin. Donations in bitcoin began to flood in when Assange was taken into custody at the Ecuadorian embassy in London, and they haven't stopped since. Wikileaks has raised 3.480 BTC, or $133,179 at today's bitcoin exchange rates, just in the last four months. Over the past several years, there have been numerous changes to the Wikileaks BTC.
