I urge everyone to read this review and write a strong letter of protest to Priti Patel and George Biden against the extradition of Assange to the USA, where his illegal and prolonged mental and physical torture and ill-treatment will be continued, as it has been continued non-stop here in the UK, until it causes his death.

Nils Melzer is the UN’s expert on torture. The book provides “a shocking account of rampant lawlessness by the main states involved – Britain, Sweden, the US, and Ecuador. It also documents a sophisticated campaign of misinformation and character assassination to obscure those misdeeds.”
