UK: WikiLeaks claims discovery of ‘extensive spying operation’ against Assange

Ruptly on Apr 10, 2019

WikiLeaks said it has discovered a spying operation against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange inside the Ecuadorian embassy in London and that images, documents and videos that were collected were then offered for sale in an extortion attempt, during a press conference in London on Wednesday.

“WikiLeaks uncovered an extensive spying operation against Julian Assange within the Ecuadorian embassy,” said Wikileaks Editor-in-chief Kristinn Hrafnnson. “We know that there was a request to hand over visitor’s logs from the embassy and video recordings from within the security cameras in the embassy, so we assume that this material, this extensive material that has been gathered, has been handed over to the Trump administration,” Hrafnnson added.

Surveillance images and videos of Assange inside the Ecuadorian embassy were shown during the press conference. One video was purported by Hrafnsson to show Assange receiving a medical visit.

“This is a severe breach of lawyer-client attorney privilege, and fundamentally undermines our ability to properly defend and provide a defence to Julian Assange,” human rights lawyer Jennifer Robinson said.

  6. What a shame and a terrible showing for the British police!
    They couldn’t afford the man a little more dignity than that? The way the arrest appears it is akin to arresting Manson!
    For years the world has counted on Wikileaks for real news about inner workings of the Neocons and Neolibs.
    This man is a hero to many, many people. As such he should be fully exonerated..rather than have to go through the rigors of sham proceedings!
