UK Won't Send Assange To U.S. If He Faces Death Penalty, Minister
Britain will not extradite WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange to the United States if he faces the possibility of the death penalty there.
“It is our broad policy in all circumstances, so it equally applies to Julian Assange, that he will not be extradited if he is going to face the death penalty.
So that will apply to him,” Junior Foreign Minister Alan Duncan said.
According to Reuters, Duncan made the statement on Thursday after Assange was arrested in London.
