Julian Assange: hero or villain?
A British judge has ordered Julian Assange to be released with bail set at €235,000. But the founder of Wikileaks, the whistleblowing website, is still behind bars after Swedish authorities appealed the decision. The 39-year-old says the rape allegations against him are politically motivated - they emerged after Wikileaks published thousands of secret US diplomatic cables. So is Julian Assange a hero or a villain?
