The Queen Can’t Help Julian Assange Because ‘The Matter Is Political’


The Queen will not be intervening to help get Julian Assange released from prison and has vowed to remain “non-political” on the matter, a Buckingham Palace spokeswoman has said.

A statement issued by the Palace, following a request for the Queens support, appears to confirm that Assange’s detention is a political, not criminal, matter.

Doctors and psychologists have warned that Julian Assange is about to die due to the torture he is experiencing in prison.

RT reports: With WikiLeaks founder Assange holed up in HM Prison Belmarsh awaiting extradition to the US, activist Chris Lonsdale penned a letter to Queen Elizabeth II last month, asking the monarch to “ensure that Mr. Julian Assange is freed from Belmarsh Prison unconditionally,” in the spirit of “justice, peace and fair-mindedness.”

In a reply posted by Lonsdale on Sunday, a spokeswoman for the Queen said that Her Majesty “remains strictly non-political at all times,” and Assange’s detention is therefore “not a matter in which the Queen would intervene.”

Assange’s supporters have long argued that his arrest and
imprisonment are motivated by politics, not justice. Assange has
languished in Belmarsh since his arrest inside London’s Ecuadorian
embassy last April, ostensibly on charges of skipping bail in 2012. He
is also facing extradition to the US to answer to a litany of espionage
charges, related to WikiLeaks’ publication of classified US military
documents detailing potential war crimes in Iraq and Afghanistan. If
convicted, he faces 175 years in prison.

Buckingham Palace’s response seemingly admits that Assange is being persecuted on political grounds. 

Assange’s health has been in steady decline since his incarceration.
Following a visit to Assange in May, UN rapporteur on torture Nils
Melzer declared that the former WikiLeaks boss showed “all the symptoms typical for prolonged exposure to psychological torture.”

Melzer added that Assange could be “exposed
to a real risk of serious violations of his human rights… including
torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment”
if he were extradited to the US.

“In
20 years of work with victims of war, violence and political
persecution I have never seen a group of democratic States ganging up to
deliberately isolate, demonise and abuse a single individual for such a
long time and with so little regard for human dignity and the rule of
law,”
Melzer said. “The collective persecution of Julian Assange must end here and now!”
