Norwegian parliamentary representatives have written a letter to the British Home Secretary Priti Patel asking her not to extradite Julian Assange to the United States.
“The decision you are now about to make on behalf of the British government, is extremely important not only for your own country, but also for Europe and the rest of the world” the letter states.
Rødt’s Sofie Marhaug, who has taken the initiative for the letter said:
“I wish it was the government that took such an initiative, but I hope this letter from several representatives can help to pressure the British Home Secretary to drop extradition.”
The letter to Patel is also signed by Tobias Drevland Lund in Rødt, the four SV representatives Ingrid Fiskaa, Kathy Lie, Andreas Sjalg Unneland and Freddy André Øvstegård, Rasmus Hansson in MDG and Åslaug Sem-Jacobsen in Sp.
