The name Julian Assange is all but unfamiliar to all of us after disclosing many private and confidential facts from the US government book of policies and this time, he isn’t on the news because he’s disclosed any other matter. This time, we can confirm that Julian Assange plans to leave the Ecuadorian Embassy in the near future. Although when exactly is the question and when asked to him, he preferred to keep the date to himself.
Although he has disclosed that he plans to leave the embassy soon, ‘soon’ could also mean a month or a year too keeping everyone in the dark about it. The founder of WikiLeaks had held a press conference earlier today on Monday, after following these new rumors that he was going to surrender and hand himself in to the London police.
However, if sources are to be believed then British TV Sky News reported early on Monday that Assange was planning to “surrender” due to his deteriorating health. But the spokesperson of WilkiLeaks had denied the reports just minutes before the press conference.
After a long speech by Ecuador’s Foreign Minister Ricardo, who addressed may of the points Assange and Ecuador have been arguing for two years, Assange simply said he’ll leave the embassy “soon,” but not for reasons “reported by the Murdoch press.” Asked to clarify his comments, Assange declined to elaborate further, leaving observers and journalists alike puzzled.
So the question to be asked now is that if Julian Assange really does come out in the near future and leaves the embassy, will the American government have him arrested immediately or after a few sessions of ‘chase-and-run’ because surely the government isn’t in any mood to welcome him with arms spread open!
