Wikileaks founder Assange faces 12 months jail for breaching bail

After being dragged by police out of the Ecuadoran embassy on Thursday, at the end of seven years of asylum, Wikileaks co-founder Julian Assange, 47, was brought before Westminster Magistrates’ Court. He was found guilty of failing to surrender to court in breach of bail conditions and faces a sentence of 12 months in jail. That is the least of his troubles. The US has demanded Assange’s extradition on federal conspiracy charges related to the massive leak of government secrets by Wikileaks. Ecuador’s president said asylum was withdrawn over Assange’s violations of international conventions. But Wikileaks tweeted that Ecuador had acted illegally in terminating Assange’s political asylum “in violation of international law.”
