Julian Assange – lawyers for US say extradition was misled

Published

on

Lawyers who are representing the US in the extradition trial of Julian Assange have told the court they believe the case was misled by his psychiatrist

The United States is currently engaged in an intense legal battle to have the Wikileaks founder extradited, with no luck so far.

In January, the court held that Assange was suffering from severe mental health issues meaning he could not be transferred to America.

Assange is wanted by American authorities for publishing thousands of classified documents between 2010 and 2011.

The documents detail how US military personnel killed hundreds of civilians in Afghanistan which were never reported to the public.

Meanwhile, the documents also state that 66-thousand people were killed and many tortured by Iraqi forces.

Whilst the United States alleges that Assange broke the law… critics say the case is politically motivated.

Lawyers for Assange say the risk of suicide would be “imminent the moment extradition becomes likely”.

Microsoft recalls ‘Recall AI’ feature over security fears

Microsoft has announced a postponement in the release of its new Recall AI feature, citing significant security concerns raised during internal testing.

Pope Francis took charge of discussions on the implications of artificial intelligence for global ethics and governance, Reuters reports.

The pope said AI represented an “epochal transformation” for mankind, but stressed the need for close oversight of the ever-developing technology to preserve human life and dignity.

“No machine should ever choose to take the life of a human being,” he said, adding that people should not let superpowerful algorithms decide their destiny.
“We would condemn humanity to a future without hope if we took away people’s ability to make decisions about themselves and their lives, by dooming them to depend on the choices of machines,” he warned.
