Julian Assange arrested in London

Julian Assange, the founder of Wikileaks is arrested in London. He will face a charge, in the United States, of hacking the Pentagon computer network in 2010. He was hidden in the Ecuador, Great Britain, to avoid his arrest. The Ecuadorean government suspended his citizenship and helped the authorities to arrest him.

Mr. Assange is facing the charges of cyber security breaches into the Pentagon network which is a serious crime. The 47-year-old, Assange, dragged out of the embassy. He was found guilty of jumping a bail by a judge and he was also found connected with an American extradition warrant.

It is a major breakthrough in terms of sorting out the issues related to the First Amendment press freedom. The leak of secret data is considered as a crime as Chelsea Manning, a former Army intelligence analyst, went through a court martial trial for leaking the secret data. Mr. Assange have been started publishing the secret data related to the army and government since 2012 via Wikileaks.

Obama’s administration did not charge him in his attempt of leaking data due to the traditional journalism concerns. The Trump administration has secretly charged him in the case of some unspecified offense. He is, now, charged in a case of helping Ms. Manning for reaching the hidden data of the Pentagon computer network. This charge does not have any relation with the traditional journalism that is why Trump’s administration charged him.

America has a keen look at Mr. Assange since he published the secrets leaked by Ms. Manning on his website. These leaks brought light to many secrets like causalities in Iraq. A jury had investigated the people nominated in the Wikileaks in Virginia. Trump administration studied the acts of Mr. Assange in order to detain him somehow. He has been arrested in London for facing a charge against him in the United States.
