 Who is Julian Assange? / Facts   

  • He is editor-in-chief of the organisation WikiLeaks, which he founded in 2006
  • He has won numerous accolades for journalism, including the Sam Adams Award and Martha Gellhorn Prize for Journalism
  • Assange founded WikiLeaks in 2006 but came to global prominence in 2010 when WikiLeaks published a series of leaks, allegedly provided by Chelsea Manning
  • These leaks included the Collateral Murder video (April 2010), the Afghanistan war logs (July 2010), the Iraq war logs (October 2010), and CableGate (November 2010)
  • Assange became even more globally recognized after WikiLeaks published more leaks - the DNC leaks and the Podesta emails - during the United States presidential election, 2016
  • Following the 2010 leaks, the United States government launched a criminal investigation into WikiLeaks and asked allied nations for assistance
  • In November 2010, a request was made for Assange's extradition to Sweden, where he had been questioned months earlier over allegations of sexual assault and rape
  • Assange continued to deny the allegations after the case was re-opened, and expressed concern that he would be extradited from Sweden to the United States due to his perceived role in publishing secret American documents
  • Assange surrendered himself to UK police on 7 December 2010 and was held for ten days in solitary confinement before being released on bail
  • After exhausting his legal options in the United Kingdom, Assange sought and was granted asylum by Ecuador in August 2012
  • Assange has since remained in the Embassy of Ecuador in London, and is unable to leave without being arrested for breaching his bail conditions
  • The United Nations' Working Group on Arbitrary Detention found, by a majority, that he has been "arbitrarily detained" and that his detention should be brought to an end; UK Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond rejected the working group's opinion and called Assange a fugitive from justice
  • Sweden finally agreed to question Assange in Ecuador's London embassy on 14 November 2016
