Lopez Obrador calls Assange’s stay in prison an injustice

Mexico, Apr 26 (Prensa Latina) Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said on Friday that ongoing imprisonment of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange is an injustice.

It is an injustice what they are doing to him,’ the president said at his regular press conference from the National Palace, where he recalled that the documents for which he remains imprisoned ‘were published by The New York Times, and were made public by the most famous newspapers in the world.’

In the end, the one who is punished, who has already been in jail for years, is Assange, and all the others were exonerated.

And that’s good, isn’t it? Because they maintain that they exercised their freedom of expression, of demonstration, but with Assange they did not apply the same principle,’ the Mexican head of State denounced.

I hope they will release him, because it is like holding freedom in prison, he emphasized.
