February 5th 2016. The United Nations Working Group on Arbitrary Detention rules Assange has been arbitrarily detained by the Swedish and UK governments - Initial detention in Wandsworth prison followed by house arrest and then confinement at the Ecuadorian Embassy. Detention was deemed arbitrary because Assange was held in solitary confinement at Wandsworth prison and because of the complete lack of diligence by the Swedish Prosecutor Marianne Ny. Human Rights activists held a solidarity vigil at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London where Assange made a speech from the balcony. All content is Creative Commons.
