18th August 2014

Julian Assange, founder of WikiLeaks and wanted man for alleged sexual assaults in Sweden, could end his asylum at the Ecuador embassy “soon”.

A press conference was held this morning where Mr Assange admitted that his health had suffered since taking refuge within the embassy.

If the Australian leaves the building he faces immediate arrest and extradition to Sweden.

Ecuador’s foreign minister meanwhile, Ricardo Patino, has said Mr Assange would continue to be offered “protection”.
