LONDON (Sputnik) – Julian Assange’s fiancee and mother of his two young children, lawyer Stella Moris, has lashed out at the British and American governments, which defend press freedom while keeping the WikiLeaks co-founder in prison.

Moris spread his angry protest after British Foreign Minister Dominic Raab and US Secretary of State Antony Blinken denounced the attacks and persecution of journalists at a press conference they shared in London.

“This blatant hypocrisy is not only dangerous, but completely untenable,” Moris protested on his Twitter account.

Raab drew attention to the numerous attacks on journalists, “from Belarus to Burma,” and warned that “violations of media freedom are growing at an alarming rate.”

On his first visit to London as Secretary of State, which coincided with the World Day of Press FreedomBlinken recalled that he was a journalist before focusing on politics and recognized the “increasing difficulties and challenging conditions” of those who work to “inform people and hold governments and leaders accountable.”

“There is nothing more fundamental for the proper functioning of our democracies, and I believe that we both strongly support the free press,” defended the Democrat.

But none mentioned Assange, whom the US accuses of espionage in connection with the publication of confidential reports on WikiLeaks and who is being held by British authorities in prison, with no pending charges, pending the resolution of the extradition proceedings.

“I am angry that the biggest threat to press freedom globally is the prosecution of Assange by the US government,” his girlfriend tweeted.

Moris explains in a complementary video that the case against the Australian professional implies that “the US can go against any journalist anywhere in the world.”

“The US Government must abandon the prosecution of Julian Assange,” he urges in his message.

The US Justice demands the former director of WikiLeaks to try him on one count of conspiracy to infiltrate government computer systems and 17 others for alleged crimes of obtaining and disseminating confidential information in violation of the Espionage law.

The indictments, which are punishable by up to 175 years in prison, stem from the disclosure of some 90,000 parts of the war in Afghanistan, 400,000 actions in Iraq, 250,000 “raw cables” from the State Department and more than 800 reports on Guantanamo.

The Westminster Court of First Instance stopped the extradition in January due to Assange’s fragile health and the risk that he would kill himself in a US jail.

But the Joe Biden Administration has revalidated the appeal against the sentence, which was presented in the High Court of England and Wales before the transfer of powers in Washington.
