Assange, an Australian citizen, will receive consular assistance on Friday but won’t be given any “special treatment”, the country’s prime minister, Scott Morrison, said. The country’s foreign affairs minister, Marise Payne, said officials had been advised that Britain would not agree to extradition if an individual would face the death penalty.

Later on Thursday, he was found guilty of failing to surrender to the court and faces up to 12 months in a British prison.

Hopefully journalists all over the world will keep an eye on what happens next.
