  • WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange arrives at the Westminster Magistrates Court after he was arrested in London Britain

An official from the UK Home Office said London had now received the full request for extradition of the Australian.

Assange founded WikiLeaks in 2006 as "an intelligence agency of the people".

Soon after his arrest in London, the USA sought his extradition to face charges of computer hacking and being involved in a compromise of classified information, a charge that carries a maximum sentence of five years.

The extradition request had been expected ever since USA authorities first announced a criminal case against Assange.

Mr. Marchand also referred to a recent statement by a United Nations official who urged Britain not to extradite Mr. Assange because he won't get a fair trial in the United States. The formal submission of the request was first reported on Tuesday by the Washington Post.

Assange is now serving 50 weeks in a London jail for violating his bail conditions in 2012, when he took refuge inside the Ecuadorian embassy in London to avoid extradition to Sweden on sexual assault charges. However, the USA introduced 17 more indictments under the WWI-era Espionage Act over "unlawfully obtaining and disclosing classified documents related to the national defense". A Swedish court recently ruled that Mr. Assange should not be extradited for the sexual-assault case, but investigators still want to question him in London. But last month, they upped the ante, accusing Assange in a new 18-count superseding indictment of violating the 1917 Espionage Act by distributing classified information. The Espionage Act dates back to 1917 when the USA had just entered the First World War.

Manning was arrested and convicted by military court martial for leaking hundreds of thousands of USA government reports to WikiLeaks.

However, Manning has now been jailed for refusing to testify before a Virginia-based federal grand jury which is continuing to investigate WikiLeaks.

John Shipton says he'll relocate to the United Kingdom in August to be closer to Assange, who's fighting a USA extradition request.
