Julian Assange on the move? WikiLeaks boss has been issued with a new Australian passport that means he could finally leave the Ecuadorian Embassy in London and go home

Julian Assange on the move? WikiLeaks boss has been issued with a new Australian passport that means he could finally leave the Ecuadorian Embassy in London and go home | 22 Feb 2019 | Julian Assange has been issued with a new Australian passport clearing the way for him to finally leave the Ecuadorian Embassy in London. The WikiLeaks founder has lived in the embassy in Knightsbridge since 2012 when Swedish authorities requested his extradition as a suspect in a rape case. The Australian denied their claims but refused to travel to Sweden to face them, saying it was part of a ruse to extradite him to the US due to his involvement in the leaking of a huge amount of classified documents in 2010. Swedish prosecutors announced in 2017 that they had closed the rape investigation and a new Australian passport clears the way for Mr Assange to end his political asylum.
