Wiki leaks Founder Julian Assange Arrested In London.
The founder of Wiki leaks Julian Assange has been arrested in London. This comes after seven long years of him living in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London. Ecuador granted Julian Asylum over seven years ago which saw him live under the protection of the Ecuadorian government by virtue of being in their embassy.
Julian is wanted for Cyber intrusion according to the U.S and could face five years imprisonment.
At the withdrawal of Julian Assange Asylum status by the Ecuadorian government, Julian was no longer protected which saw British police storm their London Embassy where Julian has been living to arrest him.
There have been some condemnation by various human right groups and countries such as Russia. There is increasingly pressure on the Ecuadorian President as people felt Britain alongside the U.S bullied him into taking such action.

According to The Ecuador’s Interior Minister María Paula Romo, Julian Assange’s asylum was revoked because there was sufficient evidence that he was meddling in Ecuador’s internal affairs in an effort to destabilize the government. The worst thing a government wants is for an outsider to destabilise an elected government.
