'Without asylum Assange heading straight to US for torture'

6 years ago17 views

With his life and liberty at stake, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is to stay under the protection of the Ecuadorian government while his asylum appeal is considered, says lawyer Susan Benn from the Julian Assange Defense Fund.

Ray McGovern, a former CIA analyst, talks to RT. He says unless Assange is granted asylum, US prosecutors getting their hands on him is a done deal. And considering the "draconian espionage act of 1917" under which he would be tried, getting to Ecuador becomes a life and death matter for the WikiLeaks founder.
