Canberra, May 31 (Prensa Latina) Christine Assange, mother of the founder of Wikileaks, criticized the Australian government for keeping away from her son´s extradition to Sweden, who was accused of committing alleged sexual offenses in that country. Julian Assange´s mother said the authorities have been absolutely useless and have discredited the journalist from Australia, to hand him over to the United States.
She claimed that governments are not doing anything, but in the search of protection for Julian is supported by Senator Scott Ludlam and the Greens (green political movement of Australia), and she also counts with the support of ordinary citizens and civil rights organizations.
Christine statements occur after the British High Court authorized the extradition of the founder of Wikileaks to Sweden, with a margin of 14 days to assess the report and consider the possible reopening of the case.
Assange became a worldwide celebrity and made Washington furious in 2010 when Wikileaks showed secret filming and U.S. diplomatic cables on the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to the world.
Supporters of the journalist plan demonstrations in several cities in Australia to show their sympathies to the founder of Wikileaks, who was awarded in this country for the contribution to the sector.
