Assange Free Brexit-compressed

By Number 23 | We Are Anonymous

While observationalists continue to debate the effects – both long-term and short-term – of the recent Brexit vote, it appears the historic decision will enable WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange to finally end his self-imposed exile in the Ecuadorian embassy.

The controversial founder of the media organization sought asylum in the Ecuadorian embassy in London back in June, 2012, after Swedish authorities declared that they wanted to question Assange over an alleged sexual assault.

As stated in a recent Tweet, the organization believes that the result of the EU referendum will result in the European Arrest Warrant (EAW) being scrapped.

However, despite Wikileaks’ apparent confidence in the matter, police have stated they would still attempt to arrest Assange if he decided to end his self-imposed exiled because he is wanted for breach of bail, according to the

Assange breached bail in January 2012 following his arrest in 2010, a spokesperson for the Met told

Assange, who has repeatedly denied the accusations of sexual assault made against him, believes the European Arrest Warrant (EAW) issued by Sweden is an American tactic meant to allow the U.S. government to extradite Assange. In the United States, Assange is wanted on espionage charges over classified US documents and footage released online by his Wikileaks organization.

In August, 2010, the Swedish Prosecutor’s Office first issued an arrest warrant for Mr Assange. Two separate allegations – one of rape and one of molestation – were stipulated on the warrant. In August, 2012, Ecuador granted Assange asylum, stating that there are fears his human rights might be violated if he is extradited.

The Free Thought Project Reports:

“This exile is a means of attempting to usurp what he perceives as an illegitimate attempt to imprison him for simply allowing the U.S. public to see what type of actions are being implemented globally at the behest of the American government and carried out in the name of the American people.”

In February, the U.N. Working Group on Arbitrary Detention ruled that Mr Assange has been “arbitrarily detained” by UK and Swedish authorities since 2010, and called for his immediate release.

“The Working Group on Arbitrary Detention considers that the various forms of deprivation of liberty to which Julian Assange has been subjected constitute a form of arbitrary detention,”U.N. Working Group’s head, Seong-Phil Hong said.

“The Working Group maintains that the arbitrary detention of Mr. Assange should be brought to an end, that his physical integrity and freedom of movement be respected, and that he should be entitled to an enforceable right to compensation.”

The EAW is a warrant that is valid through all members of the European Union. As a result, the UK’s decision to leave the European Union could provide Assange with the means to finally free himself from his self-imposed exile once the nation has finally departed the EU.
