The new indictment issued in Assange case



The new indictment issued in Assange case

We are talking about a possible “conspiracy” of Assange with the hacker group Anonymous and a hacker associated with LilzSec.





The US Department of Justice has announced a new indictment against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange on Thursday, June 25.

It is clarified that in the new conclusion there are no additional charges to the previous 18-point verdict issued in May 2019.

“However, the new decision expanded the scope of the conspiracy that existed around the alleged hacking of computers that Assange was previously accused of,” the ministry said in a statement.

The prosecution notes that Wikileaks received and published emails received as a result of hacking committed by hackers from the Anonymous group.

Washington accused Assange of 18 counts, including violation of the law on espionage and conspiracy to break into a government computer. The journalist faces 175 years in prison.

Assange is currently in a London prison, where he was taken after he was extradited to the authorities by the Ecuadorian Embassy. There the journalist has been hiding since 2012.





Recall, Julian Assange was accused in Sweden in 2010 of sexual harassment, as well as rape. Since June 2012, he was hiding in the territory of the Embassy of Ecuador in London.

Earlier, the Swedish prosecutor's office decided to terminate the preliminary investigation against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange
