UN panel rules WikiLeaks founder Assange 'arbitrarily detained'

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange addressing the media and his supporters from the balcony of the Ecuadorian Embassy in 2012A UN panel ruled Friday that Julian Assange had been “arbitrarily detained” by Sweden and Britain, stoking the hopes of the Wikileaks founder that he could walk free after almost four years in Ecuador’s London embassy. The panel added that Assange should be able to claim compensation from Britain and Sweden over his time in the embassy, where he sought refuge and has lived since with no access to outdoor space and little sunlight. The 44-year-old Australian hopes that the panel’s ruling, although non-binding, will put pressure on British and Swedish authorities to drop attempts to arrest him.
