Julian Assange

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange says that after more than two years of being holed up in the Ecuadorean Embassy in London, he’ll soon be leaving. Assange says that during the time he’s spent sequestered at the Ecuadorian Consulate in London his health has suffered.

He’s wanted in Sweden for alleged sex crimes. Ecuador granted him refugee status two years ago, but Assange hasn’t left the embassy because British police won’t let him leave the country.

He hints that new British law means that extraditions can only be applied to those who have been charged. He points out, he’s not been charged.
