The Reporters Committee moves to unseal the criminal case against Julian Assange

Press Release | November 16, 2018
Reporters Committee attorneys filed a motion in the Eastern District of Virginia to unseal the U.S. government's criminal charges against Wikileaks founder Julian Assange after the existence of a criminal complaint was revealed in a separate court filing.
 
“It’s important that the public understand what these charges are, and there’s no longer any justification for keeping the criminal complaint, the docket, and other filings related to the prosecution sealed,” said Reporters Committee Executive Director Bruce Brown.
