Julian Assange Extradition Decision Delayed Until March explained that a hearing in a London court room began February 20 over the fate of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. At stake is whether he will be extradited to the U.S. on espionage charges. Two High Court judges said they would take time to consider their verdict after a two-day hearing in which Assange's lawyers argued sending him to the United States would risk a "flagrant denial of justice". Judges delayed their decision at least until mid-March  to review new written submissions. If the decision goes against Assange, his wife Stella said they will appeal to the European Court of Human Rights.

Calls Grow To Release Julian Assange shows that bipartisan members of the US Congress support Assange's release. Australia and Mexico have also sent letters of support. New York Times Now Supports Julian Assange! explains that editors of the NYT, The Guardian in England, Le Monde in France, Der Spiegel in Germany and El País in Spain have also called for the release of Assange.
