News / Julian Assange arrested – live updates!
11 April 2019
Julian Assange has been arrested by London police at the Ecuadorian Embassy after the nation revoked the asylum it had given him for almost seven years.
The Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) issued a statement this morning saying that officers had arrested him on a warrant issued by Westminster Magistrates’ Court on 29 June 2012, for failing to surrender to the court.
WikiLeaks immediately responded by issuing a statement saying that Ecuador had “illigally [sic] terminated Assange[‘s] political asylum in violation of international law”.
To mark the occasion, TEISS will be providing live updates, profiling Assange’s career and his most controversial moments, as well as commentary from experts. We will also be looking at the wider picture: What’s next for Assange? Is he a terrorist? What’s next for secret government projects?
