Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has been holed up in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London for several years, fearing extradition to the US. Now that fear has been confirmed.
Whoops!

On 16 November, a US court filing accidentally revealed that Assange has in fact been charged by the US government. Court papers in an unrelated case taking place in the US District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia stated:

Due to the sophistication of the defendant and the publicity surrounding the case, no other procedure is likely to keep confidential the fact that Assange has been charged.

A spokesperson for the US attorney’s office in Eastern Virginia said in a statement that the release of the information was made erroneously. The New York Times reported that prosecutors in the case might have accidentally pasted the text with the revelation to the court document.
‘Deeply troubling’

Assange has sought refuge in the Ecuadorian Embassy since 2012 to evade capture by UK authorities, who have made it clear that they will cooperate with a US extradition request. He’s wanted by the US government for leaking state secrets, which it considers to be a form of espionage.

whole things kinda bullshit to me when someone can expose criminal corruption in the government and and they all escape justice but he gets labeld as a the criminal for exposing there dirty deeds.
people like asange and snowden are heroes to the public and yet they stand by watching there government slander them and destroy there reputations and seek to put them in prison for exposing there corruption.
there needs to be changes in the law regarding exposing corruption within these shadowy government organisations like the CIA it should not be a criminal offence to expose systemic criminality.

I hope the Ecuadorian government don't sell him out and hand him over to the US but I'm pretty sure its going to happen they will use him like a bargaining chip at some point :(
