The Home Secretary has signed an order to extradite WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange to the United States, it was announced on Friday.
WikiLeaks called it a " dark day" for press freedom and British democracy.
The Australian is being held at Belmarsh prison in London after mounting a lengthy battle to avoid being extradited.
Home Secretary Priti Patel made the decision on Friday, although Mr Assange's legal team will mount an appeal.
A Home Office spokesperson said: "Under the Extradition Act 2003, the Secretary of State must sign an extradition order if there are no grounds to prohibit the order being made. Extradition requests are only sent to the Home Secretary once a judge decides it can proceed after considering various aspects of the case.
"On 17 June, following consideration by both the Magistrates' Court and High Court, the extradition of Mr Julian Assange to the US was ordered. Mr Assange retains the normal 14-day right to appeal" The Telegraph.
Is this the same Extradition Act that failed to bring Anna Sacoolas back to the UK to face justice?
"The treaty has been claimed to be one-sided because it allows the US to demand extradition of British citizens and other nationals for offences committed against US law, even though the alleged offence may have been committed in the UK by a person living and working in the UK (see for example the NatWest Three), and there being no reciprocal right; and issues about the level of proof required to extradite from the UK to the US versus from the US to the UK"

I’ll have a dabble…
And yet the US refuse to extradite Anne Sacoolas calling our request ‘Highly inappropriate’
‘LONDON — The United States has rejected Britain's request for the extradition of an American woman who fled the country after she was involved in an accident in which a teenager died last year. The State Department called the request “highly inappropriate,” deepening the diplomatic stalemate over the case’
