The mayor of Mexico’s capital presented the keys to the city on Wednesday to the father and brother of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, currently jailed in London facing possible extradition to the United States on charges of violating the Espionage Act.

“It is an honor to give you the keys to the city. It is a act symbolic of what Mexico City represents: freedom of expression,” Claudia Sheinbaum said.
