Assange’s Lawyer Calls Out Government, ‘Ashamed to be Australian’

Julian Assange’s lawyer, Australian-born Jennifer Robinson, appeared last Sunday on the Channel 7 network broadcast of “Weekend Sunrise” to discuss her client’s demand for the Australian government to protect the Wikileaks editor’s rights and secure his freedom.

After six years into Assange’s captivity inside the Ecuadorean Embassy in London, there’s been virtually zero involvement by the Australian government to assist in the safe passage of Assange back to his native country.

In the interview with the Aussie morning host duo, Robinson shocks and surprises them with one very basic question: Why hasn’t Assange’s home country come to his defense?

“If the Australian government would come to the fore, and help to resolved this situation, he could come out of there at any time. […] How can we not help him? I find the Australian government’s position entirely unacceptable and one that makes me ashamed to Australian.”
