‘If Wikileaks is not classified as publisher, there’s no protection for any press’
[.]Ecuador’s President Lenin Moreno stated [Friday] that WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange will ultimately have to leave the embassy in Belgravia, London, and be handed over to British authorities, where he has been in residence under arbitrary detention since 2012 according to a UN assessment on his case. If the British then hand over Assange to the US, he will face an uncertain fate which could range from a military tribunal, to federal imprisonment, or even the death penalty for the high crimes of espionage and treason.
Moreno was not shy about his own bias in the case saying, “I’ve never agreed with the activity Mr. Assange performs, I’ve never agreed with the intervention in people’s emails to obtain information despite how valuable it is to shed light on some undesirable acts by governments and people… There are correct and legal ways to it.”
