At a press conference in Geneva, Switzerland, the wife of the Australian journalist pointed to Biden as the one who could put an end to Julian's detention and added that it is not in Washington's interest that he be tried during the electoral period.

The statements by the wife of Julian Assange were given in the framework of the presentation of a new lawsuit against the decision of the British Government to extradite him to the United States to be tried in the North American nation.

In her words, who is also one of the main activists in the fight for the release of Julian Assange added that the United Kingdom wants to speed up the process and wants to see him extradited.

Given this, he ratified that the Biden Administration could take care of that matter, but he considers that it is not in their interest, or at least, they have not shown that interest to date.

He is in the Belmarsh high security prison, after the British court accepted his extradition to the United States to be tried in that nation.
