Julian Assange: I feel like I’m in a space station
The founder of Wikileaks, Julian Assange, a refugee in Ecuador‘s embassy in London since last June, has revealed in an interview with CNN, that he compares his confinement to living on a space station.
“It’s like living in a space station, because there is no natural light and I have to do it all by myself” Assange said.
“I’ve been in solitary confinement and now I know what life is for prisoners. This is much better than it is for the prisoners,” he added.
Assange sought refuge in the Ecuadorian embassy to avoid extradition to Sweden where he is wanted for alleged sexual offense, over the fear, he says, of being taken to the U.S. to face trial for leaks and face a possible death penalty.
Meanwhile, Wikileaks has made an announcement that throughout November this year, it will spread a hundred files chronologically ordered, called “Detention Policies” which list the procedures to be followed with the suspects in custody of the U.S. military authorities in Iraq prisons, in the prison of Guantanamo (Cuba) and other detention centers in the world.
