London, United Kingdom:
UK Home Secretary Priti Patel has approved the US government’s request to extradite the WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange, her department said Friday.
The Home Office said the interior minister “must sign an extradition order if there are no grounds to prohibit the (extradition) order being made” and the courts had found none. Assange has 14 days to appeal.
