Assange to get Aboriginal passport

1 min read

WIKILEAKS founder Julian Assange has been offered an Aboriginal Nations passport in an inner-city Sydney ceremony after he was “abandoned” by Australian authorities.

His father, John Shipton, accepted the document at a celebration at Darlington.

He said his son had been jilted by the Australian government, and the passport ceremony – which follows Ecuador’s decision to grant Mr Assange diplomatic asylum – was a show of solidarity.

“Australian governments of every colour are happy to abandon their citizens when they’re in difficult situations overseas,” he said.

Mr Assange has been staying at Ecuador’s embassy in London since June to avoid extradition to Sweden, where he is wanted for questioning over sexual assault allegations.

His lawyers fear extradition to Sweden could pave the way for him to be sent to the US, where he could face trial over his website’s release of classified documents.
