The lawyers of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange are astonished at the new charges brought against their client in the United States.
It is reported by RIA Novosti with reference to the defendant’s lawyer Mark Summers.
“We were surprised at the time in which this was done. This may violate the time frame for consideration of the case, ”he said.
According to him, Assange’s defense found out about the new accusations from the media.
Earlier, the U.S. Federal Grand Jury issued a second indictment against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, suggesting his connection with the hacker group Anonymous.
There are no new criminal episodes in the text of this document, however, according to the US Department of Justice, it “expands the scope of the conspiracy around alleged computer hacks.”
