The Brazilian president describes Assange's release as a victory for democracy

Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva described the release of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange as a victory for democracy.

Lula wrote on the “X” platform*: “The world today is a little better and less unjust. Julian Assange is free after 1,901 days in prison.”

He added: "The release of Assange and allowing him to return home, albeit belatedly, represents a victory for democracy and a step in the fight for freedom of the press."

The founder of Wikileaks, Julian Assange, left Britain after spending 5 years in prison, heading to the Northern Mariana Islands of the United States, where he will be tried.

The London Supreme Court ruled to release him on bail, then Assange went to Stansted Airport on the outskirts of London and left the United Kingdom.

WikiLeaks confirmed the accuracy of the American court's information about the deal with Assange, which included his partial admission of guilt.

It is noteworthy that the American authorities accused Julian Assange of "conspiring to obtain and publish secret information related to the American national defense, after his website, WikiLeaks, revealed sensitive information about American operations in Afghanistan and Iraq."

Assange has been in British prison since 2019, where he was placed after being expelled from the Ecuadorian embassy in London, where he had been granted asylum since 2012.

The United States has repeatedly called for Julian Assange to be extradited to the United States to be tried in the aforementioned case.
