WikiLeaks founder says he will leave embassy 'soon'


08-18-2014 19:20 BJT

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has said he will leave the Ecuadorian embassy in London soon, after two years of refuge. Britain’s Sky News earlier reported that Assange was considering leaving the embassy due to deteriorating health. During a press conference on Monday, Assange suggested his health had suffered due to a lack of sunlight. But he did not elaborate further. He also refused to give more details on his departure.

"Kristinn Hrafnsson, over here, Wikileak’s spokesperson, the most highly decorated journalist, twice now, has said that he can confirm that I am leaving the embassy soon, but perhaps not for the reasons that the Murdoch press and Sky News are saying at the moment," Julian Assange said.
