the Australian WikiLeaks founder in exile at a London embassy — wants the Turnbull Government to urgently intervene in his case as he faces the imminent prospect of expulsion from his refuge.
Assange could be kicked out of the Ecuadorean Embassy in the coming weeks after that country’s new president indicated he wanted the 47-year-old to leave, and only intended to ensure he wouldn’t face the death penalty if extradited to the United States. The WikiLeaks boss has been at the embassy since 2012.
The development comes as new British Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt claimed Assange was facing “serious charges” from local police. But there is confusion about what they are, as he is only facing a minor charge for breaching bail.

......they changed PMs in Australia two days ago.... apparently in the same party... their 4th one in 5 years from what I can see.
62. Having weighed up the factors for and against and considered Mr Summers’ arguments I find arrest is a proportionate response even though Mr Assange has restricted his own freedom for a number of years. Defendants on bail up and down the country, and requested persons facing extradition, come to court to face the consequences of their own choices. He should have the courage to do so too.

Assange been dead bro. Pleading to Australia does not even make sense. They are one of our staunchest allies and frequently join in on our global escapades.
I love it how your main concern is the fact I didn't know they changed PMs in Australia two days ago
