On its anniversary, the whistleblowing organization has set out a schedule for publishing "significant" disclosures. WikiLeaks' Julian Assange said the new leaks target mass surveilance, Google and the US elections.
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.
Luckily for former Volkswagen CEO Martin Winterkorn, Germany is one of a handful of countries that refuses to extradite its own citizens on principle. But how do other countries handle extradition proceedings?
Ecuador has granted citizenship to Julian Assange, who has been holed up inside the Ecuadorian embassy in London for over five years. Quito has said naturalization should provide Assange with another layer of protection.
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.
