Julian Assange extradition to US granted as Priti Patel signs official Home Office order

Daily Express says HOME SECRETARY Priti Patel has approved an order to extradite Julian Assange to the US to face espionage charges.

The Home Office has confirmed that it will send the WikiLeaks founder to the US where he is set to face a potential life sentence. 

The case was passed to the home secretary last month after the supreme court ruled that there were no legal questions over assurances given by US authorities on how he is likely to be treated.

He is currently being held in Belmarsh Prison after being removed from the Ecuadorean embassy in 2019.

The papers say it is now the last chance to escape the Taliban, with some describing the situation as a “failure” and slamming President Biden for seemingly backing Trump’s “America first” policy. 

Elsewhere, the papers carry front-page tributes to Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts – who has died at the age of 80.
