Julian Assange reportedly nominated for Nobel Peace Prize

Julian Assange has been nominated for a 2019 Nobel Peace Prize, according to the legal campaign to defend him.

The Defend Assange Campaign tweeted a photo of Assange next to a Nobel coin on the morning of Feb. 18.

Assange was apparently nominated by 1976 Nobel Peace Laureate Mairead Maguire. Former laureates are among the select group who can nominate others for the Peace Prize, which is awarded in Oslo, Norway.

Maguire, who won for her work promoting peace in Northern Ireland during that country’s religious clashes, wrote in the Irish Examiner in January of her decision to nominate Assange.
