Assange not planning to leave Ecuadorian embassy now, contrary to reports – lawyer
The initial information was circulated by Sky News, which suggested the fugitive leaker was to spell out his next move following a public exit, while being in dire need of hospital treatment for a number of medical reasons.
Hrafnsson has told RT that it’s no secret Assange would love a chance to see the outside world again, but strongly denied Sky’s reports, saying that despite his wishes, the leaker has not made plans for an official announcement of a departure from the embassy in the immediate future.
RT's Polly Boiko spoke to a Wikileaks spokesperson, who also denied the rumors as entirely false, although much commotion could be seen happening around the embassy earlier.

Police are stationed around the clock at the London compound, ready to arrest the Wikileaks founder if he sets foot outside.
