Assange refused to appeal the sentence to 50 weeks in prison
Wikileaks founder Julian Assange refused an appeal, which he filed in June on the decision of the British court to sentence 50 weeks in prison for violating the terms of bail. As noted in the court of Appeal, the meeting on this issue, which was scheduled for July 23, was canceled. In June the Minister of internal Affairs of great Britain Sajid Javid has said that it has signed a US request to extradite Julian Assange. The British court has scheduled an extradition hearing for the end of February 2020.
In case of extradition, Assange faces a total of up to 175 years in prison.
