Julian Assange will mark his 5th anniversary in the Ecuadorian embassy in London. He will make a “special announcement” from the balcony of the embassy on Monday which will mark five years to the day since he arrived.
Despite the multiple leadership changes and terrorist attacks happening around him over the past years, the Wikileaks founder has said little has changed in the embassy he now calls home and still hopes for safe passage to Ecuador. Assange is confident the stalemate over his case can be resolved after what he describes as a “huge” year for WikiLeaks following the Vault 7 leaks.
Assange was given a lifeline last month when Chief prosecutor Marianne Ny revoked his arrest warrant for the allegations of sexual assault, Assange was told the investigation would be resumed if he visited Sweden before August 2020.
