Dear Freedom of Information Unit,

It is it the public interest that the British Tax Payer know how much public money has been expended by the Crown Prosecution Service in dealing with the Assange case, his extradition to Sweden and US. The matter has been the subject of UN special working group on arbitrary detention which found in his favour and requested he is released and compensated. Books have been written on the matter, letters to parliament, questions at government ministers. The public has a right to know how much the public purse has been burdened by this increasingly evident political case. In future a public enquiry will be held on how the Crown Prosecution Service has handled the matter. At this stage we should at least know how much has been spent on it. The FOI reply I received only covers outside partial barrister costs it hardly serves scrutiny or understanding of the costs involved. I would be very grateful if you reviewed the matter. Many Thanks Emilia Butlin

Yours sincerely,

Emmy Butlin
