A UN rights expert warns against extraditing WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange to the United States, saying he might not get a fair trial there.

UN special rapporteur on torture, Nils Melzer, said he is worried about the U-S detention practices which he labeled as problematic. He pointed to the past records of torture in the US, saying the country is NOT a safe place for cases involving national security. The UK's opposition Labour Party has also called on the government to halt the extradition of Assange to the US. The US request for the whistleblower’s extradition is set to be heard in a British court on May 2. Assange was arrested by British police on Thursday after he was forcibly removed from the Ecuadorian embassy following the revocation of his asylum there. US officials say Assange is charged with gaining unauthorized access to government documents.
