What’s next for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange? The British High Court recently ruled that the native Australian can appeal to the British Supreme Court in the proceedings for his possible extradition to the USA. His lawyers would first have to apply for admission. The decision would then lie with the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom. If the latter does not accept the case, then the decision would lie with the British Home Secretary Priti Patel. It cannot be ruled out that Julian Assange will continue to have to spend years (possibly innocently) in prison.
At least from NFT circles, Julian Assange is receiving support. This comes from the well-known digital artist Pak. He’s already made waves with his highly successful “merge” NFT release on the Gemini-powered NFT marketplace, Nifty Gateway. Now Pak has announced a collaboration with WikiLeaks to launch a series of NFTs. The proceeds are to go to the Wau Holland Foundation walk. Founded in 2003 and named after the co-founder of the largest European hacker association, the Wau Holland Foundation based in Germany has already collected millions in donations for WikiLeaks.
