Prévue ce 30 mai, l'audience d'extradition vers les Etats-Unis de Julian Assange a été reportée à la semaine du 12 juin.

Les États-Unis reprochent à l'Australien d'avoir mis en danger certaines de leurs sources lors de la publication, en 2010 par WikiLeaks, de 250 000 câbles diplomatiques et d'environ 500 000 documents confidentiels portant sur les activités de l'armée américaine en Irak et en Afghanistan.

Après un "examen médical approfondi" des experts médicaux, M. Melzer a jugé "évident que la santé de M. Assange a été gravement affectée par l'environnement hostile auquel il a été exposé pendant plusieurs années".

"Chez Assange on observe tous les symptômes d'une longue souffrance provoquée par la torture psychologique, y compris un stress, une anxiété chronique et un traumatisme psychologique nettement prononcé".

"Monsieur Assange a été délibérément exposé, pendant plusieurs années, à traitements cruels, inhumains et dégradants progressivement de plus en plus sévères, leurs effets ne peuvent être qualifiés que de torture psychologique", a dit Nils Melzer dans un communiqué dans lequel il vise tout particulièrement le traitement médiatique subi par le lanceur d'alerte.

Julian Assange a été interpellé le 11 avril à l'ambassade d'Equateur à Londres, où il était réfugié depuis sept ans, à la suite d'une demande d'extradition formulée par Washington. Début mai, il a été condamné à cinquante semaines de prison par un tribunal britannique pour violation de ses conditions de liberté provisoire.

Et la Suède a relancé des poursuites à son encontre pour viol présumé en 2010.

"Cela pourrait bien aboutir à une peine d'emprisonnement, ou peut-être même la peine de mort, si d'autres accusations devaient être portées à l'avenir", s'est inquiété M. Melzer.
