Mr Hrafnsson said the raids by the Australian Federal Police last week were a systematic attack on investigative journalists reporting on national security.
The United States government has formally submitted an extradition request to the United Kingdom for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, a USA official said Tuesday.
He said the Wikileaks founder Assange is unlikely to win the extradition case against the USA authorities.
It should be noted that according to a US-UK treaty, the extradition request must be made within 60 days of an arrest.
He was arrested by British police and is now serving a 50-week sentence for jumping bail.
Britain will now consider the USA extradition request and any possible new request from Sweden. Sweden subsequently reopened the rape probe and sought his extradition; it had dropped the charge and cancelled the warrant in May 2017.
After Assange's arrest by London police, US prosecutors unsealed a year-old indictment charging Assange with a single count of computer intrusion in connection with the publication of the secret documents. Some legal experts have said the additional Espionage Act charges might slow or complicate the extradition process to the extent the United Kingdom views them as political offences and therefore exempt from extradition.
The US official spoke on condition of anonymity because the official wasn't authorised to speak publicly.

The club is working hard to seal the deal and not repeat the mistakes which were made during the negotiations for Frenkie de Jong. The Dutch centre-half helped Ajax to beat Juventus in Turin and Real Madrid at The Bernabeu en route to the last four.
However, Manning has now been jailed for refusing to testify before a Virginia-based federal grand jury which is continuing to investigate WikiLeaks.
A case management hearing for that matter is due to take place on Friday at Westminster Magistrates' Court, and Assange is expected to appear via video link from prison.
"The American authorities, the Department of Justice, will present the evidence in support of their extradition demand", Kristinn Hrafnsson told reporters.
The "first real confrontation of arguments" in court will not be for several weeks or months, Mr Hrafnsson said.
Mr. Assange is serving a 50-week jail sentence in Britain for skipping bail in 2012 when he faced extradition to Sweden in a case involving allegations of sexual assault.
The Justice Department has charged Mr. Assange in connection with material provided to WikiLeaks by former Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning and published online in 2010, including classified documents originating from the Departments of Defense and State. I doubt it, ' Mr Hrafnsson said. The law has been used rarely and never against a journalist.
He is accused of working with former United States army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning in "unlawfully obtaining and disclosing classified documents related to the national defence", a statement said.
