Wikileaks Julian Assange jailed for 50 weeks for UK bail breach

Julian Assange’s sentence for skipping bail is an ‘outrage’ and ‘vindictive’, says Kristinn Hrafnsson, the editor-in-chief of Wikileaks. Assange was sentenced to the 50 weeks in jail for breaching a British court order seven years ago, when he took refuge in Ecuador’s London embassy to avoid extradition to Sweden.
