Australian politicians to travel to the U.K to lobby the British Government for release of Julian Assange



Wikileaks founder Julian Assange remains in Belmarsh prison in London awaiting for his extradition case to the United States to be heard later this month.

U.S authorities have indicted Assange on 18 charges,17 under the Espionage Act for conspiracy to receive, obtain and disclose classified diplomatic and military documents.

This weekend two Australian politicians will travel to the U.K at their own expense to visit Julian Assange and lobby the British Government for his release.

Andrew Wilkie and George Christensen are co-chairs of the Bring Julian Assange Home Parliamentary Group. Andrew Wilkie speaks with ABC NewsRadio’s Laura Tchilinguirian.
