LONDON, The United Kingdom (The Adobo Chronicles, Berlin Bureau) – Did you know that Amal Clooney was, at one point, lawyering for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange? Yes, that same more deserving Julian Assange whom Maria Ressa deprived of the Nobel Peace Prize!
Back in 2013, Amal suggested Assange could be made Ecuador’s technology minister, giving him diplomatic immunity, according to documents seen by the Daily Mail.
Amal reportedly wrote: “It may be legally possible for Assange to be appointed to an Ecuadorian ministerial or diplomatic post.”
“This could give him immunity from arrest and right of passage out of the UK.”
At the time, Assange was holed up in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London after claiming political asylum since 2012.
Fast forward to 2022. Will Clooney also suggest that her “client” Ressa be appointed White House Press Secretary to obtain immunity from arrest over her cyber libel conviction and other criminal charges in the Philippines?
