Julian Assange says he will be leaving the Ecuadorian embassy in London ‘soon’ but denied it was because he has developed heart, lung and blood pressure problems while living there for two years. The fugitive Australian WikiLeaks founder gave a news conference from his London hideout where he set out how he had been ‘imprisoned’ as part of a human rights scandal. Metropolitan Police officers have been standing outside the Knightsbridge building since he took refuge there in June 2012 – a vigil costing at least £11,000 per day. The 42-year-old, wanted in Sweden after allegedly sexually assaulting two women in Stockholm in 2010, has developed health issues caused by a lack of sunlight. Assange walked into the Ecuadorean embassy on June 19, 2012, and was granted political asylum two months later on August 16.
