The United Nations has dealt a bitter blow to the UK government, ordering them to immediately release Julian Assange from his “illegal detention”.

The UN rejected a UK appeal against its previous ruling in favor of Assange as “inadmissible,” which means that both the UK and Sweden will be forced to free the WikiLeaks founder with immediate effect.

Now that all appeals are exhausted, I expect that the UK and Sweden will comply with their international obligations and set me free,” Julian Assange said in a statement.

Swedish authorities want to bring Assange in for questioning over alleged sexual misconduct in 2010. The US also wants access to him for a “multi subject investigation” into Wikileaks. And Sweden refused to guarantee that it would not extradite Assange to the US if he travelled to the country to face the accusations against him.

Ecuador gave Assange asylum in 2012, and he has now been in its London embassy for over four years. The UK government has said authorities will arrest him if he tries to leave, and has routinely stationed police at the embassy.

Assange has repeatedly offered for questioning by Swedish prosecutors to take place in the Ecuadorian Embassy.

Swedish authorities finally scheduled an interview at the embassy earlier in November.

UN standing firm on Assange

The UN said the appeal made by the UK was “not admissible“. Its decision also confirms that the UK is in breach of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR); and it will continue to be if the detention doesn’t end. The UDHR is part of international law, which is legally binding.

The website Justice for Assange detailed the WikiLeaks founder’s response to the rejection:

Now that all appeals are exhausted I expect that the UK and Sweden will comply with their international obligations and set me free. It is an obvious and grotesque injustice to detain someone for six years who hasn’t even been charged with an offence.

Whether the UK authorities will abide by the judgement is as yet unknown. But the pressure is now on. If the UK ignores the ruling, it will be publicly flouting international law. And its ability to wag its finger at other countries that do the same will mean absolutely nothing.

Now we will see just how wedded to universal standards the UK really is.

  • Sorry Jeffery, the UN has no binding legal authority as national law can override this authority when desired.

  • This is not a bombshell. This is antique news!! Please stop wasting our time!!

  • Bush and his administration were tried en absentia, and found guilty of human rights violations by a Malaysian court in 2012. According to the US’s treaty obligations they are required to be rendered to the Hague for a trial.
    Did you miss that story? It was censored by the MSM. Here’s a link to Huffington Post 2014.
