Open Letter to the UK Prime Minister, Mr Boris Johnson, the Lord Chancellor and Secretary of State for Justice, Robert Buckland QC, the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Dominic Raab and UK Home Secretary Priti Patel

Dear Prime Minister,

Dear Lord Chancellor and Secretary of State for Justice,

Dear Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs,

Dear Home Secretary,

We write to you as legal practitioners and legal academics to express our collective concerns about the violations of Mr. Julian Assange’s fundamental human, civil and political rights and the precedent his persecution is setting.

We call on you to act in accordance with national and international law, human rights and the rule of law by bringing an end to the ongoing extradition proceedings and granting Mr. Assange his long overdue freedom – freedom from torture, arbitrary detention and deprivation of liberty, and political persecution.

Arrest of Ambassador to Iran: Foreign Secretary statement

Following the brief detention of Her Majesty’s Ambassador to Iran Rob Macaire, Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said:

The arrest of our Ambassador in Tehran without grounds or explanation is a flagrant violation of international law. The Iranian government is at a cross-roads moment. It can continue its march towards pariah status with all the political and economic isolation that entails, or take steps to deescalate tensions and engage in a diplomatic path forwards.“

Brexit-Deal: „Monster und dunkle Mächte“ in Brüssel

(18.11.2018) In Brüssel sind aus Raabs Sicht „dunkle Mächte“ am Werk. So sei ihm von Diplomaten berichtet worden, innerhalb der EU-Kommission werde Nordirland als „Preis“ bezeichnet, den London für den Brexit bezahlen müsse. Das sei „total unverantwortlich und rücksichtslos“, sagte er. Dahinter stecke wohl der deutsche Martin Selmayr, Generalsekretär der EU-Kommission, der in britischen Medien als „Monster von Brüssel“ bekannt ist.

The chancellor Philip Hammond reminded his party on Thursday that there would be “large fiscal consequences” of £80bn of extra borrowing. Not one part of this is acceptable. To think otherwise is to live in a demented political la-la land in which fanatical dogma outweighs the jobs, security and life chances of ordinary people.
