Democracy Now: WikiLeaks Rep: Assange Fears Torture in U.S.


Police in London have said Julian Assange could face arrest for violating the terms of his bail. Citing the case of Bradley Manning, a WikiLeaks spokesperson said Assange ultimately fears extradition to the United States.

Kristinn Hrafnsson: “The big worry is an extradition to the United States. We all know what has happened to Bradley Manning there. He was held in a situation that is equaled to torture, that is even, you can find a statement by the United Nations’ rapporteur on torture, so that is a true worry.”
