It is necessary to contact the Ministry of Justice and their statement, spokeswoman Jen Psaki said.

The White House is not going to comment on the decision of the Court of Appeal of England and Wales, which supported the appeal of the American side in the case of the extradition to the United States of the founder of the WikiLeaks organization, Australian Julian Assange, as well as further steps in this case. This was stated on Friday at a regular briefing for journalists by White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki.

She was asked to explain what the next steps of the American side will be in the Assange case. “This is an ongoing criminal case, so I will ask you to contact the Ministry of Justice and their statement,” Psaki replied.

“President [Joe Biden] is committed to the independence of the Justice Department, so we will really leave them the opportunity to talk about any further steps,” the White House spokeswoman argued.
