The 49-year-old Australian has been charged in the US under the Espionage Act for his role in publishing classified military and diplomatic cables.

“I have decide that extradition would be oppressive and I order his discharge,” judge Vanessa Baraitser said in her ruling Monday.

The US said it would appeal against the decision.
