The editor of the website Wikileaks has overseen the publication of several leaks of classified information from several governments.
Assange is wanted in connection with criminal investigations in the US and Sweden. To avoid extradition, he was granted political asylum by Equador and since 2012, he has been living in the country's London embassy.
Julian Assange has named Kristinn Hrafnsson as WikiLeaks' new editor-in-chief. Assange remains in the Ecuadorian embassy in London where for the last six months he has only been able to communicate with his lawyers.
Ecuadorian authorities are about to expel WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange from their London embassy, investigative journalist Glenn Greenwald reported. Assange was granted asylum in 2012 to avoid extradition to the US.
Assange's lawyers argue that the warrant serves no purpose now that he is no longer wanted for questioning in Sweden over alleged sexual assault. Assange has been holed up in the Ecuadorean Embassy in London since 2012.
