WikiLeaks founder Assange may leave Ecuadorian embassy in London

PanARMENIAN.Net - Police have gathered outside the Ecuadorian embassy in London, in anticipation that WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange may be about to end his self-imposed two-year exile, Sydney Morning Herald reports.

If he walks out he is likely to be arrested and extradited to Sweden where he faces an investigation into sexual assault allegations. He may also face repercussions from skipping police bail by entering the embassy in June 2012.

Assange claims he would then be at risk of being sent to the United States where a warrant awaits over his work with WikiLeaks exposing classified diplomatic and military information.

According to The National Post, Assange has developed a serious heart and lung conditions after two years’ confinement at the Ecuadorian embassy. After being unable to go outside and living in an air-conditioned atmosphere, the Australian anti-secrecy campaigner is suffering from arrhythmia, or irregular heartbeat, a chronic cough and high blood pressure.
