As Julian Assange enters his fourth year of self-imposed detention at the Ecuadorean Embassy in London, Melinda Taylor, part of his legal team, says prosecutors must realize that the cost of keeping Assange in detention outweighs the need to release him.
The mainstream media has fallen in line with the governments of the UK and Sweden to dispute the legitimacy and significance of the decision by the UN Working Group on Arbitrary Detention in favor of Julian Assange, but their claims don’t stack up.
The US is vengeful when it comes to whistleblowers and one can be accused of espionage and imprisoned for life for publishing information, said Former MI5 agent Annie Machon. Assange allowed whistleblowers to do that with greater security and support, she added.
After being kept holed up in the Ecuadorian embassy in London for over three years, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange announced that he will accept his fate and will allow the UK police to arrest him if the UN panel investigating his case rules against him.
It could be easier for the UK to leave Assange in prison than in the Ecuadorian Embassy for three years, he is kind of giving himself his own sentence in a way, political satirist Tiernan Douieb told RT.
