Julian Assange plans to leave the Ecuadorian Embassy in the near future, he told a press conference at the embassy’s London compound, where he’s been holed up for two years. The WikiLeaks founder gave no further details.
“I am leaving the embassy soon, but perhaps not for the reasons [reported],” he told journalists, refusing to clarify what his reasons are.
Speaking at the conference, he recounted the ordeal of having to hide from prosecution in a case where for four years no charges have been leveled. This has led to a serious deterioration of his health, including heart problems.
