“If they condemn Assange in the US, they must remove the Statue”: AMLO
On the day of the celebration of the Independence of the United States, the president pointed out that the country would not be a symbol of freedom if the journalist is convicted.
“If they take him to the United States and sentence him to the maximum sentence, to die in prison, we must start the campaign to dismantle the Statue of Liberty that the French handed over and it is in New York, because it is no longer a symbol of freedom”, he declared in his conference.
President López Obrador assured that he will discuss the issue with the president of the United States, Joe Biden, with whom he will meet next week, as he did with Donald Trump in writing at the time.
