Julian Assange

(idioms: EN & ES ) Former President Rafael Correia : ”Assange is, and has been since last year, an Ecuadorian citizen”. As such, today’s arrest ”is not only unlawful in terms of the legal obligations with respect the status of those granted asylum (the rights thereof) and binding International Law , but also, the Ecuadorian Constitution” – which Correa classifies as ”unheard of” and ”outrageous”.
_____
El expresidente de Ecuador Rafael Correa – Correa ha recordado que “Assange es, desde el año pasado, ciudadano ecuatoriano”, con lo cual, según explica el exmandatario, la detención llevada acabo hoy “no solo rompe las reglas de asilo y el Derecho internacional, sino la Constitución ecuatoriana”, algo que Correa ha calificado como “inaudito” e “indignante”.

ACLU | American Civil Liberties Union : comment on Julian Assange Arrest  
(April 11, 2019)

(Portion taken of the article. Please click on the available link for the full article)

« Ben Wizner, director of the American Civil Liberties Union’s Speech, Privacy, and Technology Project, issued the following comment in response:

“Any prosecution by the United States of Mr. Assange for Wikileaks’ publishing operations would be unprecedented and unconstitutional, and would open the door to criminal investigations of other news organizations. Moreover, prosecuting a foreign publisher for violating U.S. secrecy laws would set an especially dangerous precedent for U.S. journalists, who routinely violate foreign secrecy laws to deliver information vital to the public’s interest.

In response to the unsealed indictement, Wizner added:

“Criminally prosecuting a publisher for the publication of truthful information would be a first in American history, and unconstitutional. The government did not cross that Rubicon with today’s indictment, but the worst case scenario cannot yet be ruled out. We have no assurance that these are the only charges the government plans to bring against Mr. Assange. Further, while there is no First Amendment right to crack a government password, this indictment characterizes as ‘part of’ a criminal conspiracy the routine and protected activities journalists often engage in as part of their daily jobs, such as encouraging a source to provide more information. Given President Trump’s and his administration’s well-documented attacks on the freedom of the press, such characterizations are especially worrisome.”

« Under what law did Ecuadorian President Lenin Moreno capriciously terminate Julian Assange’s rights of asylum as a political refugee? Under what law did Moreno authorize British police to enter the Ecuadorian Embassy—diplomatically sanctioned sovereign territory—to arrest a naturalized citizen of Ecuador? Under what law did Prime Minister Theresa May order the British police to grab Assange, who has never committed a crime? Under what law did President Donald Trump demand the extradition of Assange, who is not a U.S. citizen and whose news organization is not based in the United States? »

Our Global Condition – Some updates (Artigos recentes, de fontes escolhidas pela fidelidade das mesmas para com os factos, e ligações para mais alguns artigos)| post idioms: EN, FR & PT

A tiny, rather insignificant note regarding this post’s  overall caption:
I was having a hard time chosing a title for this post.  I was going to leave it as *Our Global Predicament*, but, I suppose it makes not much of a difference to use either term, ”condition” or  ”predicament”.  Since I use the latter more often, this time I’ll favour the first  type of  wording.

I shall now leave the following links, straight away, with no further delay.

(thank you for reading)
