Who is Julian Assange?
Julian Paul Assange (born 3 July 1971) is an Australian journalist, publisher, and campaigner who started WikiLeaks in 2006. WikiLeaks first gained public notoriety in 2010 when it published a series of disclosures provided by Chelsea Manning, a U.S. Army intelligence analyst.
Sweden issued an international arrest order for Assange in November 2010 following allegations of sexual assault. The claims, according to Assange, are a pretext for his extradition from Sweden to the United States for his role in the disclosure of classified American secrets.
He breached bail and sought sanctuary in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London in June 2012 after losing his appeal against extradition to Sweden. Ecuador granted him shelter in August 2012 on the grounds of political persecution, with the expectation that if he was deported to Sweden, he would be extradited to the US.
In 2019, Swedish prosecutors withdrew their investigation, claiming that their evidence had “much deteriorated due to the considerable period of time that has gone since the incident.”
