Wikileaks co-founder can be extradited to the United States according to British Home Secretary Priti Patel.

An appeal is expected to be filed.

From Fox News:

Julian Assange’s extradition to the United States on spying charges was approved Friday by British Home Secretary Priti Patel.

The WikiLeaks co-founder’s legal team is expected to file an appeal within the required 14 days. The development follows a British court ruling in April that Assange could be sent to the U.S.

The Home Office said in a statement that “the U.K courts have not found that it would be oppressive, unjust or an abuse of process to extradite Mr. Assange.”

British and Australian lawmakers lashed out in anger.

From Newsweek:

British and Australian lawmakers have reacted with anger to the decision of U.K. Home Secretary Priti Patel to approve the extradition of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange to the United States.

Assange, an Australian citizen, faces 17 charges in the U.S. under the Espionage Act relating to classified documents that were leaked in 2010 and 2011, which the U.S. says broke the law and endangered lives.
