Extradition is perfectly normal. Many, if not all, countries practise it.

Yeah, we're caught in a little war with China, right now because Canada is holding a senior Chinese executive for extradition to the USA. The problem is that Trump has publicaly declared that the arrested executive is a bargaining chip for him in his trade negotiations with China. Therefore, we are holding political prisoner/hostage on behalf of the American governmemt. The Chinese response has been to arrest a few random Canadians in China and sentence them to death.

And the Canadian response to the Chinese executing some Canadians would be the usual weak, feeble, lovey-dovey response expected from most Western countries nowadays: "We can't execute this guy because that would go against his human rights and we mustn't declare war on China because some people might get hurt."

We're secretly getting ready for our invasion of China, right now.

You Brits in?

WikiLeaks' Julian Assange charged with violating Espionage Act, U.S. officials say, in case that could test First Amendment rights


Assange, 47, remains jailed in London following his April eviction from the Ecuadoran Embassy. Assange, who already faced a conspiracy charge in connection with the 2010 leak of diplomatic cables and military documents that WikiLeaks published, has vowed to fight any effort to extradite him to the United States.

Two prosecutors involved in Julian Assange case argued against Espionage Act charges


The prosecutors examining the WikiLeaks founder's case feared such charges posed serious risks for First Amendment protections and had other concerns, according to people familiar with the matter.

The previously undisclosed disagreement inside the Justice Department underscores the fraught, high-stakes nature of the government��s years-long effort to counter Assange, an Internet-age publisher who has repeatedly declared his hostility toward U.S. foreign policy and military operations.
