Julian Assange's human rights lawyer Jennifer Robinson addressed the media, explaining that Assange is ready to cooperate with British justice, provided he gets an assurance that will not be extradited to the United States, after a session in London's Westminster Magistrates' Court on Tuesday. The session today also meant that Robinson «finally had the opportunity to put before the court the background to this case and the long history to the injustice that has led him to remain inside the Ecuadorian embassy,» Robinson added. In addition, Robinson accused the United States of abusing espionage laws to silence critics. Assange has been residing in the Ecuadorian embassy in London since 2012, with British police waiting outside, ready to arrest the WikiLeaks founder for breaking his 2012 bail conditions.
