Julian Assange’s legal team has lodged its application for the overturning of the UK Supreme Court’s decision to reject his appeal against extradition, arguing a key point it claims could reverse the decisions of two of the majority judges in the case, which would deliver a win to Assange.
Immediately upon delivery of the verdict two weeks ago, Assange’s legal team, headed by barrister Dinah Rose and solicitor Gareth Peirce, requested leave to apply for a reconsideration of the verdict on the basis that a key issue in the judges’ consideration, the applicability of the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties, hadn’t been argued before the court.
