Date created : Latest update :
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.
