WikiLeaks’ Assange to seek World Court’s help

The so called ‘World Court’ is the arbitration body for disputes between nations and could order Britain into negotiations.



London: Julian Assange’s legal team is planning to seek help from the International Court of Justice (ICJ) to allow the WikiLeaks founder to exit Britain safely and seek asylum in Ecuador.

Assange’s lawyers are preparing an application to the ICJ judges to ask them to force the UK to approve his safe passage to Ecuador.

According to The Daily Mail, the ICJ, the so called ‘World Court’, is the arbitration body for disputes between nations and could order Britain into negotiations.

Britain had reportedly cut all contact with the South American nation after it granted WikiLeaks chief asylum last week.

Assange has been holed up in Ecuador’s embassy in London since June 19 in a bid to avoid extradition to Sweden, where he is demanded for questioning over allegations of sexual assault.

Ecuador accused Britain of threatening to storm its embassy in London after the Foreign Office said it could rescind the building’s diplomatic protection.
