Wikileaks Founder Freed from Prison Following US Plea Agreement



Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, has been released from Belmarsh Prison in London after reaching a plea agreement with the United States.

Assange has been held since 2019, facing extradition to the US on charges of conspiracy to commit computer intrusion and violations of the Espionage Act related to WikiLeaks' release of classified documents.

The plea deal involves Assange admitting to lesser charges, resulting in a reduced sentence.

This development marks a pivotal moment in the decade-long legal battle that has drawn global attention and debate over issues of press freedom and national security.
