ALHR Urges Government to provide appropriate advocacy for Assange

July 9, 2012

ALHR President, Stephen Keim SC, wrote to the Prime Minister Julia Gillard, and Federal Attorney-General Nicola Roxon and Foreign Minister Bob Carr to seek assurances that the Australian government is undertaking appropriate advocacy on behalf of the Australian citizen, Julian Assange, whose safety and rights to due process have appeared to be in some jeopardy for a lengthy period.

While ALHR has not yet received a response from either office, other requests for assistance have been refused, and are catalogued on the Justice for Assange – Declaration of Abandonment webpage which can be accessed by clicking on the link below.

In October ALHR received a less-than responsive reply from the Attorney-General. See below.
