Assange Supreme Court hearing videos
« on: March 09, 2012, 04:11:56 AM »
Does anyone know where to find the Assange Supreme court hearings videos ? There are a few on youtube, but its not complete. I've been searching for a month now, and a complete set of videos covering the entire hearing isn't there anywhere. I can't make out  if this is because its being sanitized or if the videos are being held back for posting after the supreme court delivers its judgement.

thanks
sushi

Hi Sushi

Indeed, I had a look about your enquiry and this is what I found out, as per my telephone conversation today with Supreme Court staff:

The UK Supreme Court broadcasts Live its hearings via Sky (as we know) and this is done in Broadcast format. The transmition is not recorder in DVD format, to convert it would be very expensive. The transmission is also not archived. The hearing is not transcribed unless special transcribers are hired by interested parties at the time.

The very helpful staff at Supreme Court that I spoke to (Tel: +44 (0)20 7960 1900  -  http://www.supremecourt.gov.uk) indicated that the Supreme Court's Communications department (+44 (0)20 7960 1886 & +44 (0)20 7960 1887) could offer more information on the "intricacies of obtaining a recording".

It is therefore not surprising Sushi that you have been unable to find a complete video of it but if you are absolutely determined maybe you can follow up with the Supreme Court directly by calling the numbers above ;)

Of course it is surprising that media organisations who followed the event and also transmitted the event (SKY/CNN) did not think to make a recording available to the public.

Best of Luck!

Thanks for the information ! I'll ask a friend in UK to call up the supreme court numbers you mentioned. In any case, it seems likely that there's going to be some paperwork and money involved in getting a copy of the hearing tapes from the supreme court. I'd rather donate the money to a worthy cause ;-) and wait for a kind soul to post the proceedings on the net ;-). I did watch most of it live, but there's only so much one can remember from several hours of oratory  !

Julian Assange extradition breaches legal principle, lawyer claims

First day of hearing into extradition of WikiLeaks founder to Sweden centres on issue of Swedish prosecutor's impartiality

Julian Assange's extradition appeal starts at the high court.

The arrest warrant for Julian Assange should not stand and breaches "a matter of fundamental legal principle", the supreme court has heard .

Dinah Rose QC, defending the WikiLeaks founder in his final appeal against extradition to Sweden told the panel of seven senior judges that to consider the Swedish public prosecutor as a judicial authority was "contrary to a basic, fundamental principle of law".

Reaching back as far into European legal history as the Codex Iustinianus, dated 376AD, Rose said the Swedish prosecutor was a party in the Assange case and therefore not independent and impartial, breaching the principle that "no one should be judge in their own cause", which Rose said was one of the pillars of natural justice.

Thanks, Green. Those videos are are probably the only ones around. If you do come across the entire proceedings somewhere or know someone who does, do let me know. I would be glad to transcribe the entire proceedings. Although the video of the entire proceedings would be too bulky to circulate freely, the transcripts will fare much better.
