Assange gets a bit more freedom again
london - WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, who hides in the London embassy of Ecuador, may have a little more contact with the outside world. Assange has not been able to call and use the internet in recent months, but according to WikiLeaks these restrictions are relaxed.
Assange has lived in the embassy for about six years. The Australian reported there in 2012, when Sweden issued an arrest warrant against him. Assange feared being extradited to the United States via that country. He could then be prosecuted for publishing secret information on the whistleblowing site.
The relationship between Ecuador and Assange has since been soured. The new government was wrong in saying that Assange remained critical of friendly countries. Assange was therefore only allowed to receive his lawyers in recent months.
