Julian Assange: The most dangerous man in the world?

Julian Assange spent seven years holed up in the Ecuadorian embassy in London and is now in the city's Belmarsh prison awaiting possible extradition to the United States – this to face charges for violating the US Espionage Act by publishing military and diplomatic files in 2010. The WikiLeaks founder is seen by some as a hero, while others have described him as "The Most Dangerous Man in the World" – the title of a 2011 book by our guest Andrew Fowler, an award-winning investigative journalist.


Speaking to FRANCE 24, journalist Andrew Fowler shares his point of view on Assange's case and the WikiLeaks founder’s personality.
