Eileen Chubb from Compassion in Care and The Whistler has written to District Judge Vanessa Baraitser to raise the alarm that her proposal to move Julian Assange’s US Extradition Court Hearing from Westminster Magistrates Court to Belmarsh Magistrates Court is against the public interest. Let’s stand up for our constitutional rights and for the right to open justice through open courts.
Let’s follow her excellent example! :-)
