During a videoconference with Oxford students from the Ecuadorian Embassy where he took refuge, he said he read the script of that movie named “the Fifth Estate.”
“Lie upon lie. The movie is a massive propaganda attack against Wikileaks and members of my team”, he said. He also accused the movie to “add fuel to the fire” regarding the Iran conflict.
He relates that in the script the first scene takes place in an Iranian military complex where documents have nuclear symbols. “What does it have to do with us ?” asked Assange.
