Julian Assange presser at Frontline Club...epa05144564 WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange addresses a press conference at the Frontline Club via video link from the Ecuadorian embassy, Central London, Britain, 05 February 2016. A UN expert panel said Friday that Britain and Sweden are detaining WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange in an unlawful manner and called on the countries to allow the whistleblower to leave his hiding place in the Ecuadorian embassy in London. Assange said the UN panel's decision is 'the end of the road' for Sweden and Britain's legal arguments against him, saying the rights body had found his detention 'unlawful.' Assange fears that an extradition to Sweden could be followed by an extradition to the United States, where he faces a possible life sentence for publishing secret government documents on his WikiLeaks platform.
