Download Episode.

Scott talks with journalist Mohamed Elmaazi about the latest Assange hearing before the UK High Court. The hearing, which took place on Tuesday and Wednesday of last week, saw the Assange team requesting the ability to make an appeal on the order extraditing the Wikileaks founder to the United States. Elmaazi, who attended the trial, explains the arguments each side is using at this stage. He and Scott also take a step back and talk about how ridiculous this case against Assange is, bringing up and shooting down all the common myths used to smear this heroic journalist.

Discussed on the show:

  • “Assange Is No ‘Ordinary Journalist’: US Opposes Request For Appeal” (The Dissenter)
  • “UK High Court Finally Hears Assange’s Request For An Appeal” (The Dissenter)

Mohamed Elmaazi is a journalist who has covered all of Julian Assange’s hearings. His work has appeared in The Dissenter, Consortium News, Jacobite and Electronic Intifada. He is the new editor-in-chief of Truth Defence.
