NEW YORK (PNN) - April 28, 2019 - Julian's Assange's father fears his son may spend the rest of his life behind bars if he's extradited to the Fascist Police States of Amerika.
John Shipton has broken his silence after the arrest of the WikiLeaks founder earlier this month after he was evicted from the Ecuadorean embassy in London.
Shipton claimed Assange was traded by Ecuador to the FPSA in return for an International Monetary Fund loan if he was removed from the embassy, where he had been holed up for seven years prior to his arrest on April 11.
Speaking publicly for the first time since his arrest, Shipton claims his son has been persecuted and betrayed by FPSA politics.
“Ecuador doesn't have its own currency,” said Shipton. “My fear was that he'd been dragooned to the (FPSA) and been thrown into a jail cell, never to get out again,” Shipton said.
“Ecuador uses the (FPSA) dollar. You can't get an IMF loan unless the (FPSA) approves it - upon agreement to remove Julian from the embassy.'
Assange's lawyer Greg Barnes, described his client's recent arrest as revenge by the FPSA government, while Shipton claimed the FPSA is determined to ruin his son's life.
Shipton also hit back at the embassy's claims his son was evicted for inappropriate behavior, describing the accusations as smears.
