Wikileaks Press Conference About Assange Arrest
This 62 minute video demonstrates there are always at least two sides to every story
This Ruptly TV coverage of the Wikileaks Press Conference about what went on inside the Ecuadorian embassy in
London gives some balance to the reports we have been seeing on mainstream media in New Zealand .
Wikileaks reveal it discovered a spying operation against Wikileaks founder Julian Assange inside the Ecuadorian embassy in London and that images, documents and videos that were collected were then offered for sale in an extortion attempt, during a press conference in London on Wednesday.
"Wikileaks uncovered an extensive spying operation against Julian Assange within the Ecuadorian embassy," said Wikileaks Editor-in-chief Kristinn Hrafnnson. "We know that there was a request to hand over visitor's logs from the embassy and video recordings from within the security cameras in the embassy, so we assume that this material, this extensive material that has been gathered, has been handed over to the Trump administration," Hrafnnson added.
Surveillance images and videos of Assange inside the Ecuadorian embassy were shown during the press conference. One video was purported by Hrafnsson to show Assange receiving a medical visit.
"This is a severe breach of lawyer-client attorney privilege, and fundamentally undermines our ability to properly defend and provide a defence to Julian
Assange," human rights lawyer Jennifer Robinson said.
