Julian Assange released from British prison 

Founder of WikiLeaks Julian Assange has been released from a British prison on bail, The Guardian reports.

The verdict is due to be announced tomorrow at a hearing on the island of Saipan in the Northern Mariana Islands. Most likely, the judge will approve the sentence he served for five years, and he will not face any further sentence.

Assange left Belmarsh prison on Monday morning, after 1,901 days of captivity there.

To remind, in April 2019, the U.S. Department of Justice announced that it accused the founder of WikiLeaks of conspiring with the organization’s intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning to hack government computer networks to share classified military documents.

The United States is seeking to have Assange extradited, who faces up to 175 years in prison.
