What Is It Like To Be Stuck In The Ecuadorian Embassy For Over Three Years with Simon Owen

For a time Thursday it looked as if Julian Assange may have been about to end his self-imposed three-year stay inside the Ecuadorean Embassy in London. The Wikileaks founder said he would walk out at noon on Friday and accept arrest by British police if a UN panel examining his case didn’t rule in his favor. Assange asked UN experts to consider his claim that his time inside the embassy constitutes arbitrary detention. In the event, the panel’s verdict came down on the side of Assange, meaning it looks like his long stay at the embassy will continue. Assange is taking refuge at the small embassy in up-market Kensington to avoid extradition to Sweden to be questioned about allegations of sexual assault.  Simon Owen joined Charly Butcher on “Fort Wayne’s Morning News” to bring the latest to this story.
