A British court has approved the extradition of Assange to the United States, the decision is made by the Minister

A British court today officially approved the extradition of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange to the United States, where he is accused of espionage, and the decision will be made by the executive power in London.

Whether to approve the extradition should now be decided by the British Minister of the Interior, Priti Patel, and Assange still has the right to appeal.

Last month, the British Supreme Court did not allow Assange to appeal the lower court’s verdict so that he could be extradited.

Assange has been trying for years to avoid a trial in the United States, where he is accused of publishing a large number of confidential documents more than a decade ago.

His lawyers have four weeks to present their arguments to Minister Patel, and they can also request an appeal to a higher court.
