US President Biden ‘considering’ dropping Assange charges

United States President Joe Biden says he is “considering” a request from Australia to drop the prosecution of Julian Assange.

The WikiLeaks founder has been indicted on 17 espionage charges and one charge of computer misuse over his website’s publication of classified U.S. documents relating to the Afghanistan and Iraq wars almost 15 years ago.

The Australian national was taken to Belmarsh prison in London five years ago, after being dragged out of the Ecuadorian embassy, where he stayed while fighting against being taken to the US.

Julian Assange Reaches Plea Deal With US Government

Julian Assange , Reaches Plea Deal With , US Government. 'The Independent' reports that Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has been released from Belmarsh prison as part of a plea deal with the United States Justice Department. Assange will be flown out of the U.K. as part of the deal before he makes a guilty plea deal that could end the years-long legal battle. On June 24, Assange boarded a flight at Stansted airport ahead of a scheduled appearance later this week in the Mariana Islands, a Western Pacific U.S. commonwealth. The U.S. government has charged the Wikileaks founder with conspiracy to obtain and disclose national defense secrets. The charges stem from one of the largest leaks of classified information in U.S. history, disclosing tens of thousands of reports regarding the war in Afghanistan. The disclosure, which occurred between 2009 and 2011, included unfiltered diplomatic cables that potentially endangered the safety of confidential sources. . The leak also included significant activity reports related to the war in Iraq and information regarding Guantanamo Bay. According to the latest DOJ filing, Assange is expected to plead guilty and be sentenced to 62 months of time already served, thus avoiding U.S. imprisonment. . This is the result of a global campaign that spanned grass-roots organizers, press freedom campaigners, legislators and leaders from across the political spectrum, all the way to the United Nations, Wikileaks statement, via X. After more than five years in a 2x3 metre cell, isolated 23 hours a day, he will soon reunite with his wife Stella Assange, and their children, who have only known their father from behind bars, Wikileaks statement, via X

T20 World Cup: Rohit’s Magnificent 92 Help India Win Against Australia, Set To Face England In Semis

The 2024 T20 World Cup has delivered another shock as Afghanistan knocked out defending champions Australia with a historic win against Bangladesh in the final Super Eight fixture in Kingstown. Despite setting a modest target of 115/5, Afghanistan's spirited bowling led to a narrow eight-run DLS victory, eliminating Australia from the tournament. This result offers relief to India, who have often struggled against Australia in World Cup knockouts, including the 2003 ODI World Cup final and the 2023 final. India has managed key victories against Australia in past T20 World Cups, and this development eases the lingering pain of their recent World Cup final defeat. #T20WorldCup #RohitSharma #IndiaVsAustralia #CricketVictory #SemiFinals #IndiaVsEngland #CricketFans #Rohit92 #IndianCricket #CricketWorldCup #CricketHighlights #T20Cricket #WorldCupSemis #TeamIndia #CricketFever ~PR.152~

Negotiations on Global Treaty to End Plastic Pollution Reach Critical Phase [Video]

Negotiations on Global Treaty to End Plastic Pollution Reach Critical Phase

Negotiations on Global Treaty , to End Plastic Pollution , Reach Critical Phase . 'The Independent' reports that negotiators from around the world have met to discuss what could become a global treaty meant to end plastic pollution. . The Intergovernmental Negotiating Committee on Plastic Pollution has begun agreeing on treaty language at their fourth of five scheduled plastics summits. The most ambitious and contentious idea revolves around limiting how much plastic can be manufactured globally. As most plastics are made from fossil fuels and chemicals, oil and gas exporters have strongly objected to the limitations, along with plastic-producing countries and companies. According to Stewart Harris, an industry spokesperson with the International Council of Chemical Associations, the treaty also focuses on recycling and reuse. . We want to see the treaty completed. We want to work with the governments on implementing it. The private sector has a role to play, Stewart Harris, an industry spokesperson with the International Council of Chemical Associations, via 'The Independent'. 'The Independent' reports that the Scientists’ Coalition for an Effective Plastics Treaty provided scientific evidence on plastic pollution at the negotiations. I heard yesterday that there’s no data on microplastics, which is verifiably false: 21,000 publications on micro and nanoplastics have been published, Bethanie Carney Almroth, an ecotoxicology professor at Sweden's University of Gothenburg who co-leads the coalition, via 'The Independent'. Ecuador's chief negotiator, Walter Schuldt stressed that countries present at the negotiation share a common vision of moving forward in the treaty process. Because at the end of the day, we’re talking about the survival of the future of life, not only of human life but all sorts of life on this planet, Walter Schuldt, Ecuador's chief negotiator, via 'The Independent'
