Julian Assange still in 'arbitrary detention'

From Checkpoint, 5:45 pm on 19 February 2016

According to who you're talking to, Wikileaks founder, Julian Assange, remains in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London as a fugitive from justice or a victim of "arbitrary detention". Those last two words, "arbitrary detention", are how a United Nations panel has described his position, a major victory for Assange, announced a fortnight ago, in which the UN called for him to be allowed to walk free. He hasn't walked free.
