Harry Dunn’s family has spoken out against the extradition of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, slamming the US government for “demonstrating an extraordinary amount of hypocrisy” in demanding the whistleblower’s return but dismissing a request for the woman charged with killing their teenage son to be sent back to Britain.
Dunn’s family filed a request with the foreign affairs secretary, Dominic Raab, to halt the extradition process for Assange ahead of the first full court hearing, scheduled for Monday, 24 February.
Radd Seiger, the Dunn family’s spokesman, was quoted by the Mail on Sunday as saying:
“Despite its disgraceful refusal to extradite Anne Sacoolas, the US continues to seek the extradition of people in the UK – such as Julian Assange. In doing so, they are demonstrating an extraordinary amount of hypocrisy.”
The spokesperson added:
“As Dominic Raab told us when we met with him on January 27: ‘We are reviewing all options.’ We want him now to exercise the option of not extraditing Julian Assange to the US.”
