Swift Quoted on Conspiracy Case Against Assange

12 April 2019 Legaltech News News
Partner Christopher Swift was quoted in a Legaltech News article, “Why the Assange Conspiracy Case Isn’t a Lock for Prosecution,” about some of the hurdles prosecutors will face in securing a conviction against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.

Swift noted that Assange’s extradition to the U.S. could be refused under the European Convention on Human Rights if the charges against him are punishable by the death penalty, although prosecutors in the Eastern District of Virginia, where the case is based, say Assange is facing a maximum penalty of five years in prison on a single count of conspiracy to commit computer intrusion under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act.
