reykjavik - The Icelandic journalist Kristinn Hrafnsson is the new editor-in-chief of the famous whistleblower website WikiLeaks. The founder of WikiLeaks, Julian Assange who sought refuge in Ecuador's embassy in London, has had virtually no contact with the outside world for six months. WikiLeaks reported that Assange therefore appointed ex-spokesman Hrafnsson as new chief editor.

Assange has been in the embassy of the South American country since 2012. He sought refuge there when he was free on bail in London. There was a Swedish extradition request in England at the time. And Assange feared to be extradited to the US via the Scandinavian country, because they are looking for him for publications of confidential information about military activities.

Ecuador now has another government and the current president Lenín Moreno Garcés wants to get rid of Assange. The 47-year-old Australian Assange can only communicate with his lawyer since March. Moreno negotiates with his own words with London about the departure of Assange from the diplomatic mission of his country. Assanges health status would be worse.
